This article investigates the problem of church unity, paying special attention to unity within and across boundaries of language and culture. The problem is approached from a church canonical point of view. A synopsis is given of the resolutions and viewpoints of the three Afrikaans Churches in South Africa. The reasoning behind the different points of view of these Churches which all adhere to reformational traditions and which all function and work in the same country, is discussed critically. Finally an attempt is made to indicate a few canonical parameters which may be regarded as guidelines to address the problem of unity and diversity in the one Church of Jesus Christ our Lord.
