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:
27 January 2019 - "Bible Reliability" - 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?
03 February 2019 - 'Overview of the Gospels' - Given by Martin Longland
We have four Gospels written by four different authors. Each have done so from their own viewpoint and compilation of information gathered from different sources. We are going to look at the following by way of a simple overview.
10 February 2019 - 'The Power of Why?'- given by Raoul Perfitt.
The Power of Why: - It all starts with “Why”, we need to understand why we are Christians. It’s so much more than what we do or how we do it, it’s about feeling, trust and a belief in something bigger than ourselves. This desire drives us to pursue others who share the same “Why” as us. And oddly enough, the Golden Circle matches the way our brain operates…….
17 February 2019 - 'How can I believe? - given by Nigel Patterson
In an increasingly secularist and agnostic society belief in a God is seen as naive and irrelevant. This talk will review some ideas which show that such a belief is entirely reasonable and worth further investigation through (in?) the Bible.
24th February 2018 - 'The Kingdom of God' - given by Adam Parsons
