What is the DBCL?

On February 2, 2013 the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Centre London (DBCL) was officially opened as part of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Church in Forest Hill with a Bonhoeffer Day on the theme "In Prayer and Righteous Action". This newly founded Centre coordinates and stimulates activities on the life and work of this great German theologian and writer of the 20th century.
