If you visit the exhibition you will find, at the end of the stands, an area with coffee tables and space to stop and chat if you have time.

Christadelphians have been in Macclesfield for over 60 years and as a worldwide community, in over 100 countries, we have been around since 1848. There is more literature available about us and more available through this web site.

Don’t be frightened by the name Christadelphian. In Bollington we have Adelphi Mill from the Greek meaning Brothers Mill, so Christadelphian means Christ’s Brothers.

In Macclesfield we hold regular church services on Sundays and Wednesday evenings in our own hall in Pinfold Street. We also hold weekly Bible Reading Groups at our hall on Tuesdays, and in homes on Thursdays.

We have some distinctive beliefs and some of these are shared with people you have heard about in this audio guide. For example

o        Martin Luther had come to believe that Christians are saved through faith and not through their own efforts.

o        Miles Coverdale perceived that the reformation of the church must be effected by the Word of God.

o        Miles Coverdale publicly declared against the mass worship of images, and spoken confession, which he considered altogether useless.

o        William Tyndale believed passionately that people should be able to read The Bible in their own language.

o        John Wycliffe strongly believed that The Bible ought to be the common possession of all Christians, and needed to be made available for common use in the language of the people.

o        William Tyndale translated church as congregation when St. Paul was referring to “The Church” as a group of people rather than the building.

We will be delighted to talk with you on these subject and any others you would like to discuss.
