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!

04 March 2018 - Is Religion important today? - given by Vic Perfitt
“Religion is a Western construct as there is no Universal way to define religion. Karen Armstrong author of The Case for God writes, “In the West we see religion as a coherent system of obligatory belief, institutions and rituals, centring on a supernatural God”. The Oxford Classical dictionary firmly states “No word in either Greek or Latin corresponds to the English “religion” or “ religious”. Nevertheless religion of various faiths and beliefs are playing an evermore important role in society near and far.
We try to explore this phenomenon to ask “What does it mean to me”?
