Verse of the Month (coming soon)
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:
21 April 2019 - 'Let's go down to the Potter's house' - given by Brian Marshall
When an archaeologist finds a sherd of pottery in the ground, it’s a real treasure. From that single piece he can learn a great deal about the people, place and date of its origin.
Join us in a talk about pottery of the Bible, and discover what this has to do with you and me and how this might answer so many questions, and hopefully gives us a great deal of comfort
28 April 2019 - 'How can we love our enemies' - given by Jeremy Ward
There can be many enemies in our lives. Not just the distant terrorist but much closer to home – or even at home! The Bible tells us to love them but how on earth are we supposed to love people who aren’t nice, who we don’t like and who may even be horrible to us? Surprisingly, it may be easier than we think once we figure out what this controversial statement of Jesus Christ really means.
05 May 2019 - 'Jerusalem - always in God’s plan’ - given by Geoff Purkis.
In this illustrated talk we hope to show how Jerusalem features prominently in the history of Israel, represents a contentious issue today and according to Bible prophecy is still to feature in the outworking of God’s plans for the earth.
12 May 2019 - 'Spiritual growth - are there different approaches to developing our relationship with God? - given by Stuart Walker
19 May 2019 - 'The impact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on his family and friends' - given by Richard Cooper
“Many of the family of Jesus did not believe his teachings during his ministry. When Jesus was arrested, his disciples forsook him and fled. After the resurrection, there was an amazing transformation in his family and his friends. Please come and hear about this remarkable change on 19 May at 12.15pm. The resurrection of Jesus Christ can have a remarkable impact of you and me too.”
26 May 2019 - How did we get our Bible? - given by Eric Lowe
"This illustrated talk will explore how the Bible came to be put together in the form we now have it. It will look at why certain books are included, while others are left out. There is also a review of the different languages and some of the versions currently used in English speaking countries. Finally we discuss it's relevance to today."
