Christian Science - a healing teaching for all

Our public Reading Room, church and resource centre is located at 196 Mansfield Road, Nottingham NG1 3HX. We would be delighted to see you at one of our services or meetings or in our Reading Room. There is nothing secret or mysterious about Christian Science and far from being a dogmatic religion we encourage people to think for themselves and find inspiration and healing through prayer.

Textbooks for healing

The two books have brought comfort and healing to untold people over the years. God's healing love is the foundation of The Bible, especially as it was demonstrated in the life of Christ Jesus and his followers. A little over 100 years ago, Mary Baker Eddy discovered that the laws of spiritual healing are available and demonstrabel today and she wrote about her discovery in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the Christian Science textbook. 

These books are the foundation of Christian Science teaching.

In a time when women were not expected to think for themselves Mary Baker Eddy blazed a trail. Brought up in a devout family she nevertheless faced many personal and health challenges in the first half of her life. In 1866 she faced a life threatening situation and was healed by reading The Bible. She dedicated the rest of her life to find the science or spiritual law behind this healing, wrote a book and founded a church to carry forward her discovery.


Her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scripture is the textbook of Christian Science. 


As a lifelong student of The Bible, Eddy dedicated herself to discovering the spiritual meaning of the Scriptures and demonstrating that applying its spiritual laws can bring healing and harmony to individual lives.
