The Confessing Church

Project Bonnhoeffer

Exploring how Christians today live out their lives in the world.

In his 'Letters and Papers from Prison', Bonhoeffer wrote

“We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.”

Books by and about Bonhoeffer are widespread

He has had a widespread influence on how people think about Theology and Praxis.

Does this sound familiar?

“Our church, which has been fighting in these years only for its self-preservation, as though that were an end in itself, is incapable of taking the word of reconciliation and redemption to mankind and the world.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters Papers from Prison

And what this means in today's world

Faith in Action

We support the Faith in Action strand of the work of the Student Christian Movement.
Welcome to Project Bonhoeffer, a small UK-based organisation set up in 2012 to inform and remind today's Christians - young and not-so-young - of the challenges of discipleship that Dietrich Bonhoeffer addressed in his radical theology and in his Christian witness leading to his execution at the hands of the Nazis at the end of the Second World War.
