Abstract

Church ministry to post-modern city dwellers

The world today is characterised by postmodernism and urbanisation. Both these processes have a serious impact on the world as we know it – on social life, and also on the ministry of the church. Working from a practical-theological foundation, the church is defined as a “called community of believers”. The issue, however, is how this community should effectively and practically live out their faith in an urbanised post-modern world. This issue is investigated and suggestions in this regard are made.
