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!
Talks for September and October
24 September 2017 - The Lord Jesus - given by Mark Hayles
Everybody's heard of him. Everybody's heard of some of things he did. But just who was he? A really nice bloke who went round doing good? A rebel who stood up to the authorities? Just how well do you know the man?
01 October 2017 - Signs of the Times - given by David Bilton
08 October 2017 - Entertaining Angels - given by Peter Tyer
Scripture tells us we should be hospitable to strangers because a person we meet but don't recognize could actually turn out to be an angel. In this session we look at the incident that may well have prompted this advice being given and see what lessons we can draw from it.
15 October 2017 - God's Plan for the future world - given by Mike Riley
22 October 2017 - The Bible the only authority - given by Kevin Sweeney
Most churches/denominations state that they believe the Bible to be God's Holy Word. The Bible is God's authoritative message to us. What I have discovered though, is that these churches/denominations use the Bible to give authority to someone or something else and then this someone/something else becomes the REAL authority and not the Bible.
We will explore that by looking at examples.
29 October 2017 - Surrender: the end of our spiritual journey - given by Jim Bilton
