The Bonnuskirche Osnabrück is considered one of the few tented churches in Germany.
On 1.1.1962, the Bonnus parish was founded to accommodate the expansion of the city to the west. It emerged from parts of the Katharinen- and Mariengemeinde.
The baptistery was used by Old Catholics for worship for a long time.
