African churches have discovered their missionary call to Europe. Hundreds of churches have been planted there by African missionaries in the course of the last decade. Some call the growing movement of African missionaries to Europe "mission in return", others are rather sceptical. The gospel that is coming back home seems a changed gospel. This article investigates the nature of the missionary message African missionaries bring to Europe and explores the consequences of this for both European and African Christians who are seeking to renew Christianity in Europe.
