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.

16 April 2017 - "The hope of resurrection from the dead" - Given by Jeremy Ward
Central to the Christian faith is the belief that God will raise the dead. The Bible says "If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men". So is there life after death and is the hope of the resurrection based on superstition or good reason? This talk will examine the evidence and show why many people are convinced resurrection is a real hope offering an amazing future to Christians.
