Faith in Action Project
About the Project:
SCM's Faith in Action project began in 2012 with a vision that, through the project, Christian students in Britain will have a greater awareness and understanding of Bonhoeffer’s radical approach to faith and discipleship and its implications for Christian living in the modern world. The aims of the project are to increase the understanding of Bonhoeffer’s approach to faith and the meaning of Christian Discipleship amongst students and recent graduates, to enable students and recent graduates to reflect theologically on their life, work and study, and live out their faith in action, and to develop the skills and confidence of students and recent graduates to challenge the structures of injustice and be leaders of social and political transformation. Our Faith in Action Project lead worker is Emma Temple, SCM's Regional Development Worker for the North East and Yorkshire.
Project Bonhoeffer is a small charity which aims to continue the impact of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s life and ideas by helping young Christians put their faith into action and create a more just world. Find out more about Project Bonhoeffer.
SCM is a member of the Climate Coalition as part of our 'Loving the Earth' campaign and the Faith in Action Project. The Climate Coalition is a group of over 130 organisations — including the National Trust, Women's Institute, Oxfam, and RSPB — reaching across the UK to show our love for all the things we want to protect from climate change, and to ask politicians to put aside their differences and commit to doing whatever is necessary to protect them.

About the Project:
The SCM Connect project aims to support young people in the transition to university by providing resources to help them maintain their faith throughout their studies. The initial phase of the project was to develop an online directory of student communities, Link Churches and chaplaincies to enable young people to find vibrant and inclusive Christian communities at university where they can explore their faith with other like-minded students. In 2017, Rob Chivers was appointed as the SCM Connect Project Worker to develop SCM's outreach to 16-18s, and to support chaplaincies and churches in their work with young people.
The Methodist Church
The SCM Connect Project has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the Methodist Church.
