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!

0 August 2017 - "Put on the full armour of God" - given by Martin Longland
We will be looking at what Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus, in particular chapter 6. What was the thinking behind encouraging his listeners to be ‘Strong in the Lord’ and to put God’s full armour on? Was this motivated by what happened when he visited Ephesus? And why use this particular wording to encourage the followers of Jesus. His words are emphatic and precise in terms of what to wear and how each part fits together. No half measures, all or nothing for the followers of Jesus, but who are we defending ourselves from?
27 August 2017 - What is treasure in Heaven? - given by Jeremy Ward
Most of us get a gleam in our eye at the idea of finding countless wealth. Think of the National Lottery. But, wealthy or not, ‘you can’t take it with you when you go’, as they say! In the Bible, God promises us something so special he calls it ‘treasure in heaven’. It’s a treasure that lasts forever. Finding it isn’t a question of choosing the lucky numbers or trusting to chance – it is a guarantee for anyone who chooses to believe and follow Jesus Christ. Come and find out more.
