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.

08 April 2018 - Who is Jesus? - given by Jeremy Ward
As the founding figure of Christianity, Jesus is a name that millions know. Yet how much do people really know about him – who he was and what he stands for? In this session, we will look at the effect he had on those who met him, what conclusions they came to as to who he was, and what he actually said himself on this subject.

29 April 2018 - Resurrection - Given by Peter Tyer
"When Jesus brought Lazarus back from the dead this was rather more than an act of kindness. It was a sign pointing forward to a future time when faithful men and women will be made alive again.
Jesus himself was raised from the dead and has been made alive again - he is the first of many for whom the prospect of eternal life awaits when he returns to the earth"
