Abstract

In this study, against the background of the land philosophy of traditional African society, a sketchy overview of the colonial invasions and the partnerships with missionary enterprise will be depicted to introduce the problem statement. This will be followed by a discussion of the ecclesiological position of the church presented by the SA Council of Churches within the context of the democratic government’s Land Reform Policy, which will then introduce the case study of the Moravian Church in South Africa as a church in point in relation to the issue of land and traditional societies. This case study will assist us in venturing deductions to the issue of the impact of land reform on the church in relation to the claims of traditional societies.
