Project 3:28 exists to see the UK church embrace gender justice. By standing together as men and women committed to change, we want to bring a prophetic message of equality to the church. You can connect with us here.
Throughout church history, theological interpretation and tradition have been used to insist women are 'equal but different'. Project 3:28 wants to offer a better way: practical, lived-out, visible equality actively valuing and releasing every person regardless of gender. Our multi-pronged approach includes:
Building a movement of women and men committed to challenging imbalance and promoting gender justice in language, action and culture.
Developing a database of diverse, capable speakers.
Collating and publicising the gender balance on the Christian platform.
Providing Christian events and organisations with a theological, practical framework to achieve gender justice.
Sharing knowledge and educating in the area of gender justice.

OF THE UK CHURCH IS WOMEN
OF CONFERENCE SPEAKERS ARE WOMEN
As these statistics demonstrate, an imbalance exists in the church - the current voice is predominantly male, yet the body female.
We believe this reflects a wider issue of gender injustice - the on-going limiting, diminishing or silencing of women - affecting us all. From women's representation in public life, stereotyping & 'everyday sexism' through to global epidemics of exploitation, domestic & sexual violence, women are not equal. Both men and women are limited by this. All lose out.
Women and men together, we want to create a church that is a safe, nurturing and positive place for women and girls, men and boys - a profound example to the world. By working together we can see change happen and be light to the world, a city on a hill.
Our name originates from Galatians 3:28, "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
