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

26 February 2017 - " New birth, living hope & a protected inheritance " - given by James Riley
With so much depressing news around us these days, it can be hard to be positive! New birth, living hope and a protected inheritance are three promises that Peter explains are on offer to all those who will acknowledge Jesus as their saviour. This session will dig into each of those promises and try to identify real tangible ways that we have reason to be glad! This is a feel good talk!
05 March 2017 - "The bible teaching about offerings and sacrifices" - given by Martin Longland.
Sacrifices and Offerings became a fundamental part of everyday life for God's people and is a very prominent feature in the Bible. We plan to take an 'on the surface' look at the meaning and purpose behind them and the principles involved. So what are they all about? They left a legacy that continued down the ages in old testament times. Then came Jesus......

Jesus taught with unparalleled wisdom, and always in a way his audience would understand. Unpick his parables and you'll find they're just as relevant today as they were 2,000 years ago.
