Who we are and what we believe
The Parkstone Christadelphian Church has been in Douglas Road, Parkstone, Dorset UK since 1960.
The name ‘Christadelphian’ means ‘Brothers and Sisters in Christ’ and we are members of a world-wide community of Christians. We aim to live our life by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, according to the teaching of His followers in the first century AD.
We see the Bible as the wholly inspired Word of God and we base all our beliefs on Bible teaching.
Central to Christadelphian belief is that Jesus Christ will soon return to the Earth. He will establish the Kingdom of God and grant eternal life to His people – those who have tried to follow Him and His Father.
We ask all those who are interested in the Gospel message to study their Bible. It will be our privilege and responsibility to help all those who want to come to a knowledge of Bible truth.
Please note that the time for our memorial meeting is 10.30am every Sunday.
We then break for refreshments before commencing our public talk at 12.15pm
FREE BIBLE READING SEMINAR SERIES - there will be three this year. Please see here for free seminar details.
The following Sunday afternoon public talks are planned, God willing. All take place at our Douglas Road Hall and start at 12.15pm. (Except where noted) You'll be sure of a warm welcome when you come along!

14 May 2017 - Lethal weapon or instrument for good? (Illustrated & Interactive) - Given by Arne Roberts
How can something be both good and bad at the same time? What if we possessed the power for positive change, but which could also wreak great destruction?

21 May 2017 - Need a Lift? - Given by Eric Lowe
'There are times when we all lose our sense of direction or feel we are sinking in the challenges life presents. Together we can find a new direction or be lifted up by looking at the guidance and help the Bible offers today - to everyone. Whatever our age, situation or background a Lift is there waiting to be taken. Do you "need a lift?"'
28 May 2017 - Whatever Next? - Given by Craig Wilcox
When yet another shattering event occurs; be it Natural or man-made we often hear the expression ‘Whatever Next?’ It is a response to the unexpected the unimaginable. There is an ancient book that explains both the unimaginable and the unexpected: it’s called the Bible. In it we have the keys to expect the unexpected and imagine the unimaginable. Join us for a voyage of discovery about what it says and perhaps we won’t be taken by surprise whatever next.

18 June 2017 - Thoughts on Jesus in the Old Testament - Given by Jonathan Edwards
What is apparent from the gospel records, not least Mark’s gospel is that many of those who met, heard and saw Jesus at work, who were devote Israelites with a good knowledge of their scriptures did not understand who he was. In this session we will be asking the question: Did Jesus’s knowledge of his scriptures (The Old Testament to us) help him to understand who he was and does our reading of the Old Testament help us to understand who he is?
