Mission includes all that the church is called by its Lord to do in continuation of His mission in the world. The church in her mission is interested in the whole of people’s lives and needs. The church is also called to mission in the South African context. Do we know this context? Do we understand the challenges of this context?

This article touches on some aspects of the new situation, and provides outlines for the launch of a new enquiry.
