Mission & Vision

Our Origins

Project Bonhoeffer was set up in 2012 by a small group of friends who, remembering the impact of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s life and ideas on their own thinking as young Christians fifty years ago, felt it was important to convey something of that experience to young Christians today.

Project Bonhoeffer is there to provide opportunities for them to think and to act – reflecting on faith… and in doing something about it in the context in which they feel called to serve.
Project Bonhoeffer seeks to inspire and enable people to put Christian faith into action in ways that make a positive difference in the world, engaging with the key social and political challenges we face.

We are a small independent charity with limited resources yet seeking to offer opportunities and experiences for some of today’s generation of young Christians to explore the meaning of their faith – and to live out that faith individually and collectively as they are called to do. The Trustees meet regularly and undertake all the activities of the charity, supported by our part-time administrator.
