Who are the Christadelphians?

The Christadelphians are a small religious group of people who follow the faith and beliefs of the first century Christians as recorded in the Bible. We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God and is our only guide.

We have been in existence for over 150 years. The name “Christadelphian” comes from two Greek words that mean “brothers and sisters in Christ”. We are located in many countries of the world, including the United Kingdom, North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia and Africa. Like the early Christians, we meet in homes, rented rooms and our own halls.

Each congregation is called an ‘ecclesia’ (the Greek NT word for church). We have no paid clergy or church hierarchy. Members of each congregation are addressed as brother or sister and all are involved in organising our ecclesial activities. Members contribute their time and energy voluntarily in service to God. A strong common belief binds our brotherhood together.

Membership is extended to those with similar beliefs after being baptised (fully immersed in water).
