A little history
From the days of the first century apostles there have been groups of believers with the same convictions as ourselves. Always they have been a minority, often persecuted for rejecting the doctrines of the established churches, preferring to hold fast to Bible teaching.
In the 19th century one such group was required by the authorities to provide itself a name for registration purposes, and so the name Christadelphian was formed from the Greek words signifying brothers in Christ. In some other countries, the name has been translated into the local tongue, for example ‘Broeders in Christus’ in the Netherlands.
Today there are congregations in many countries of the world, although nowhere very numerous, and we all share the same beliefs. In some places we meet in our own buildings, in others in hired halls, or even in our own homes. We meet, usually weekly, to share bread and wine in remembrance of the sacrifice of Christ; we hold public Bible talks explaining the Bible message and we hold Bible Classes where we study God’s word in greater depth.
Who are we?
Why the Bible
To understand the Bible’s message and enjoy the benefits, we have to read it for ourselves, so the entire King James Version is built into this website, with a reading plan that works through the Bible in three short portions each day, completing the Old Testament once, and the New Testament twice, each year. Portion 1 comes from Genesis to Job, Portion 2 from Psalms to Malachi and Portion 3 from the New Testament.
So that we are never far from reading the life story and teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, we split the New Testament into four groups each beginning with one of the gospels - Matthew and Romans, Mark and the two letters to the Corinthians, Luke followed by Galatians to Philippians, and finally John’s gospel followed by Acts then Colossians through to Revelation. This scheme fits neatly into six months and the same sequence is repeated in the second half of each year.
Each day the plan’s three portions are listed here on this homepage. Read them from your own Bible, or click the button in the listing to read or listen to them from this site. To view the readings for any other day, click the Daily readings menu item at the top of the page and navigate to the day you want.
