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:
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."
02 June 2019 'Peter the disciple and me’ - given by Chris Davis
The apostle Peter is the everyman of the New Testament his honesty his frustration and his failings are what makes me feel better about myself.
A man who could fit his life around his work and his master and despite all be chosen to be the rock that Jesus would build his church around.
In our day to day lives we have high points and low points and so thankfully did Paul he is our closest example to how man can follow the Master - He who would valiant be - gains all disaster - let him in constancy follow the Master!
09 June 2019 "Chosen by you" - given by Phil Mundey
How do we receive that call from God to be part of His family? And how does ‘choice' work in our relationship with Him, and with His son, the Lord Jesus Christ? How important is staying faithful in that relationship?
16 June 2019 'The not so good Samaritan’ given by Chris Gaston
'One of the most well known and best loved of Jesus' parables is the story of 'The Good Samaritan'.
Less well known is Jesus real life encounter with a Samaritan woman . She is shunned by her own community but finds an offer of acceptance from Him. A simple request for a drink of water starts a conversation that has the potential to change her life for the better. It seems that her messed up life is every bit as important to Jesus as the big questions of religion. In 'The Not So Good Samaritan' we find as many lessons for today as in the favorite parable.'
23 June 2019 "Being Born Again" - given by Phil Aucott
30 June 2019 "Lessons from the life of Paul" - given by Peter Tyer.
"SHOCK HORROR - MAN WITH BLOOD ON HIS HANDS APPOINTED CHURCH APOSTLE!
So why did Jesus appoint the apostle Paul? Would it be tolerated today?
We try to answer this and take one or two lessons from the life of this remarkable man, the apostle Paul."
