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
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 December 2016 - Is Being Good, Good Enough - given by Luke Harrison
"Is being a good citizen, friend and neighbour good enough for God? How does God value our good deeds and can they ever be sufficient to result in us receiving an eternal reward? In this session we will evaluate what God wants from everyone that believe in Him, and how we can ensure that we are acting in a way that pleases God"
Please join us in our Sunday 23rd December 2018

30 December 2018 - Finding Contentment, - this year, sometime, ever? - given by Peter Tyer
In a world that can be lonely and stressful, is there any hope of
finding contentment? And what is it anyway that can make us
feel happy or content? Society has quite a few tips but the
Bible has some of the best ones!
06 January 2019 - "Things...not done in corner" - given by Peter Tyer
Despite centuries of persecution, despite the horrors of the holocaust, Jewish people survive, a tiny percentage of the world's population. But more than that, after nearly 1900 years and against all the odds their nation was re-born and exists today.
In this session we reflect how events that have played out on the world stage have fulfilled Bible prophecy concerning the Jews...and how there is still more to be fulfilled.
13January 2019 - "Lord, teach us to pray" - given by Mike Riley
We shall be looking at the Lord’s prayer (as it has become known, which is for his followers) and comparing it with the prayer of John 17 which Jesus allowed his disciples to overhear and which was very personal between him and his Father.
In either prayer we have the assurance of the hope of the Kingdom of God yet to be established on earth with all the accompanying blessings associated with it. In the latter we have the relationship which we are offered with the Lord Jesus and with our God.
20 January 2019 - "Egypt - friend or foe?" - Given by Chris Davis
27 January 2019 - "Bible Relativity" - given by David Brown
Bible reliability – the evidence from the 1st Century. The way that individuals (both believers and sceptics) used the Old Testament tells us much about their view on its credibility and informs our own understanding – is this the Word of God, or not?
or (which is Paul in front of Agrippa – but no-one can tell!)
