Welcome to the Berlin Institute for Urban Transformation

We are a working partnership of Gemeinsam für Berlin (“Together for Berlin”) and the Theologisches Seminar Rheinland (“Rhineland School of Theology”). The city institute BIT would like to activate, unify, and equip Christians and others in the city to seek the best for their city. We do that through training, applied research, and networking.

  • Our mission is the positive transformation of hearts and conditions in the city.
  • Our vision is a dynamic city movement, that carries charity, hope, and justice into every sphere and lifeworld of society.
