    Abstract

    UNGERER, André. A Practical Theological research on the involvement of congregations in the community where they exist. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2011, vol.67, n.3, pp. 181-190. ISSN 0259-9422.

    The study deals with the question about the involvement of congregations of the two traditional Reformational churches in South Africa, namely the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC) and the Netherdutch Reformed Church of Africa (NRCA) in their communities. The question posed is whether the love of God is kept for the benefit of the congregation or whether it is also for the well-being of the community. The study comprises two parts, an introduction that deals with the theory of mission and service to the community. The second part is an empirical study where 12 projects were given as examples and congregations were asked about their involvement.
