Finding God, finding health

Explore how a growing understanding of God is a reliable way to maintain health and bring joy and fullness to life.

If you and friends are looking for better health and a deeper, more meaningful way of life, Practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker Michelle Nanouche observes, “Spirituality isn’t just a lifestyle choice. It is the basic element of true being.”

This one–hour lecture introduces Christian Science.  It explains God as active, present and accessible.  No one is or can be, separate from or left out of the divine presence.  The unique revelation of God’s full nature, explained by Christian Science, unlocks the potential within us to not just survive, but to thrive.

The Reading Room

A Christian Science Reading Room is a community bookstore, containing products and resources for researching, exploring or studying spiritual healing and prayer, regardless of anyone’s religious faith.

Our Reading Room is for everyone to visit. Here you can chat, learn, log on, share and browse. You can buy the Bible, the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy – the Christian Science Journal, and the Christian Science Sentinel and the Christian Science Monitor, a Pulitzer Prize winning daily newspaper paper. You will also find reference materials other writings of Mary Baker Eddy, biographies and Children’s books and audios.

Our Reading Room has a free lending library where everyone is welcome. There is also a space where you can go to enjoy spiritual study or listen to podcasts of lectures from around the world.

We are in the heart of Sydney – an oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city.

What is a Christian Science Reading Room?

Can anyone visit one?

A Christian Science Reading Room is part bookstore and part library. Its purpose is to make available to the public resources that nurture spiritual discovery and healing.

I found it did just that when I was struggling in my early 20s. A lack of direction and isolation from family and friends led me to spend time in a Reading Room quite often. I can say that each time I visited, the loneliness and dark cloud of purposelessness lessened. The spiritual resources brought me comfort and clarity in how to think about my life from a healing perspective.

There are online as well as print materials available now. When you first go in, you will probably see a selection of Bibles and Bible resource books, as well as the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, available for purchase. A librarian will be there to greet you, answer any questions you may have, or just invite you to browse. You will also find the Pulitzer-prize-winning newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor; Christian Science magazines, which include authenticated testimonies of healing through prayer alone; and a variety of biographies on Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science.

One of the unique parts of a Reading Room is the quiet study room where anyone can study, read and pray. These public places are a resource for anyone on a quest for spiritual understanding, as I was, and are open to people of all faiths, backgrounds, and ways of life.

Next time you pass a Christian Science Reading Room, I hope you will feel free to visit. You will find us at the ground floor of 49 York St Sydney, trading hours: Monday – Friday 9:30 – 4:30pm (except public holidays). We also have a reading room in our First Church at 295 Broadway, Glebe 2037 – trading hours Monday to Friday noon to 4 pm.
