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!
16 Sept 2018 - 'Change is all around - should I change too?" - given by Eric Lowe
"It seems that global events are changing today more than ever. Is this really what's happening? What does this mean for us all? This Bible based illustrated talk considers these questions and challenges us to face up to what's going on and find a positive way forward."
23 Sept 2018 - 'The Joy of Baptism' - given by Darren Guy
“There was a man recorded in the New Testament that was in a very sad position. He could not marry, have a family and one would imagine that the potential for joy and happiness in his life was limited. Then, due to his determined interest in the scriptures he came across a man that would change his life for ever...Jesus. He would then recognise the command of following Jesus which is initially witnessed by the process of baptism. This, then followed by a life of joy.
This outstanding and heartwarming story is recorded for our benefit, because we too can feel that same joy by our close association with Jesus.”
30 Sept 2018 - 'From Saul to Paul - I once was blind' - given by Chris Davis
The conversion from a religious and brutal zealot wholly opposed to even the idea of a single man being the Messiah and in contrast the man Paul who brought about the rapid growth of Christianity to the known world. A first hand account and a look at the change of a man who was blinded by the light and saw the Amazing Grace.
14th October 2018 - 'The Coming Kingdom of God' - given by Denis Woodgate
The world is in a mess people live in fear, corruption, terrorism, famine and floods.But God gives us hope, he promises through Jesus hope, peace and safety.
Read about it in Isaiah 35 Isaiah 45 and many more.
7th October 2018 - 'Abraham Unplugged' - given by Tim Webborn
Abraham was called the friend of God so it is assumed that he had an intimate relationship with God. We shall explore just how surprising this communication actually was in reality, and in doing so we shall discover that Abraham was very much like you and me, and gain strength in our own experience of God in the 21st Century.
21st October 2018 - 'In the Beginning' - given by Marcus Perryman
“We shall take a look at the very start of the Bible and what it claims is the beginning of all things, and then ask how this is relevant today with our understanding of the nature of the universe, and why it is relevant to each of us individually”
28th October 2018 - 'Time and Chance - a Biblical Perspective' - given by Jonathan Edwards
Consideration of our own experiences of when time, we rarely have enough and chance, which only occasionally seems to work in our favour, appear to be influencing our lives lead us to think about change and choice. The biblical record has a lot to say about time, chance, change and choice and it becomes clear that our understanding can be directed and underpinned if we take the time to appreciate the biblical perspective.
