The mission of the African immigrant churches in the multicultural context of the UK
MetadataShow full item record
This study explores how the African immigrant churches can change their theologies and practices to become churches that can strategize to be the vanguard of spiritual, emotional, economic and social liberation in the United Kingdom by consistently addressing the crucial areas of people’s lives and focusing their time, resources and actions to transforming lives. For the African immigrant churches to become relevant within the multicultural context of the UK, they need to adapt to an ecclesiastical style that would be different from those practised in most churches in Africa. Today, the central challenge facing the future of the African immigrant churches is the possibility of harnessing the historic resources that have informed and governed their existence to date. The African immigrant churches are in imminent need of a new vision, openness and loving service in whatever communities they are located. Clearly, the African immigrant churches preach the Gospel and are the antitheses to values that counter godly living to their own kind. However, this study believes that these churches can work with the White majority churches for a more effective sharing of the Gospel within a multicultural context of the United Kingdom.
