What is Christian Science?

Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, defined it as “the law of God, the law of good . . . ” (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 1). In Christian Science, God is understood to be infinite Love, and so invariably good that a clear glimpse of this through prayer has power to heal, redeem, and restore anyone.


Love lived — the brethren healed.


The mission of Canterbury Crest is to assist those relying on Christian Science for healing through the ministry of Christian Science nursing.

What is Christian Science Nursing?

Christian Science nursing is a practical, spiritual ministry that actively supports an individual’s decision to rely on Christian Science for healing. Established in The Manual of The Mother Church, (Article VIII; Section 31), this caring activity is grounded in the Bible-based teachings of Christian Science, impelled by Christ Jesus’ commandment to "love one another" (John 15:12).
