'New wine in new skins and the conservation of both': Rethinking the identity of the Hervormde Church at the beginning of the 21st century

This contribution consists of three sections. The first represents a homiletic speech that served as the inauguration address of the “National Colloquium” of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church in April 2006. The second is a memorandum aimed at describing the church’s identity, ethos and relevance in the present-day South African context. This memorandum was initially compiled by the author, sanctioned by the church’s executive council and endorsed at the “National Colloquium”. The third section represents the Colloquium’s final declaration of intent based upon the memorandum.
