At first, we did not have a name for our group, and there have been many different worldwide communities who have shared our beliefs over the last two thousand years.
Although the modern Christadelphian movement originated in the 1840s, starting in North America and the British Isles, it was only in 1861 that the name was created, during the outbreak of the American Civil War. Christian groups who did not fight were required to be registered.
The word “Christadelphian” combines two Greek words which together mean “brothers in Christ”, although there have always been sisters, too.
the1way.net is run by the Reigate & Banstead Dawn Christadelphians.
The Dawn Christadelphian fellowship has members across the globe, and the Reigate & Banstead Ecclesia is in the south-east of England. We’re just one of many ecclesias, which is the name given to our groups which meet together.
