About Third Church of Christ, Scientist of Los Angeles

Third Church of Christ, Scientist of downtown Los Angeles brings a vital tranquility and health-giving harmony to this community, as we’ve done for over one hundred years. In the midst of contemporary high-rises, fashionable complexes and “a thousand million different human wills, opinions, ambitions, tastes and loves,” this humble little church promotes healing, the Christ-cure, the “still, small voice of Truth; the infinite Truth of the Christ that breathes God’s presence and power, casting out error and healing the sick.” 

Divine Love always has met and always will meet every need.”
— Mary Baker Eddy

Special event, in Spanish, on May 20 at 3:15 p.m.

We’re hosting a Spanish-speaking talk on Christian Science at our newly renovated downtown church location. Although some have already heard this lecture in recent months, there will be many who haven’t and we encourage all to make the excursion to come to the city to receive fresh insights and useful inspiration. Download the flyer (PDF) for more information.

If you haven’t had an opportunity to hear Heloisa Rivas deliver her insightful talk entitled NEITHER YOUNG NOR OLD … please come to the downtown Christian Science Church, Third Church at 730 S. Hope St., where there’s free parking and ample room to enjoy a terrific lecture. 

This will be a great opportunity to hear a wonderful message on how Christian Science works, how you can work with it and at least some of what this incredible religion has to offer. We have plenty of invitation cards for you here at the church or you can email us or call and request that we send you one (or more). Call us at 213-622- 3639 or email us at thirdchurchla@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP! Hope to see you soon!
