Christadelphians

Christadelphians (from the Greek for Brothers of Christ / Christ’s Brethren: Christou Adelphoi; cf. Greek of Colossians 1:2—”brethren in Christ”)[1] are a Christian group that developed in the United Kingdom and North America in the 19th century. The name was coined by John Thomas, who was the group’s founder. Although no official membership figures are published the Columbia Encyclopedia gives an estimated figure of 50,000 Christadelphians[2] in 120 countries[3] established in many countries throughout the world,[4] along with isolated members. Census statistics are available for some countries. Estimates for the main centres of Christadelphian population are as follows: United Kingdom (18,000),[5] Australia (9,987),[6] Malawi (7,000), Mozambique (5,300), United States (6,500),[7] Canada (3,375),[8] New Zealand (1,782),[9] Kenya (1,700), India (1,300) and Tanzania (1,000).[10] This puts the figure at over 55,000.
