We have been in Pershore for 50 years!
2nd July 2022We have been in Pershore for 50 years! The Christadelphians in Pershore are celebrating their 50th anniversary with an open day in July. Their hall in Paddock Close will be open for visitors to enjoy a cream tea, view their displays and, the following week, share presentations. The first meeting in June 1972 was held in Mission Hall (later St Agatha’s Hall) in Head Street, with a handful of members. As the membership grew, during the 1970s and 80s, a Sunday School was run to which many children from the local community were welcomed. Since 2002, the Christadelphians have met in their own hall in Paddock Close, and have subsequently grown to over 80 members. There’s an open invitation to come to the hall on Saturday 9 July between 11am and 4pm, when there will be displays about the regular worship and activities. A strawberry cream tea and drinks will be served throughout the day. You can listen to an exciting talk outlining the Bible’s answer to our world’s problems, on the subject ‘Hope for a hopeless world’, on Wednesday 13th July at 8pm, and repeated on Sunday 17th July at 10am. There is no charge to attend any of these activities. The name ‘Christadelphians’ is formed from the Greek words for ‘brothers in Christ’ and reflects the New Testament example. There are groups of Christadelphians worldwide. The community believes the whole of the Bible is from God, accepts it as their only authority, and welcomes shared reading and exploration of its message.
