The InSpiRe Centre for Initiatives in Spirituality and Reconciliation at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, and the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Centre.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a protestant pastor and theologian, but he is widely read and appreciated across denominational boundaries. He was himself an important contributor to the early ecumenical movement, and faced controversy through bringing forms of religious life and spiritual practices back to the Protestant fold in the mid-1930s. Some have even called Bonhoeffer a Christian martyr; perhaps a precursor for what Pope Francis recently described as an ‘ecumenism of blood’. 

Please join us as we seek to explore Bonhoeffer as a reformer of his own and other Christian traditions, to investigate different interpretations of his work from different ecclesial perspectives, and to celebrate the life of a man who continues to offer a powerful witness to all Christian believers.
