Abstract


In hierdie bydrae word die Nederlandse wortels van die Gereformeerde sendingwerk wat sedert 1960 te Richmond (KZN) gedoen word, ontleed. Die volgende aspekte sal ondersoek word: die kerkhistoriese agtergrond van hierdie sendingwerk wat vanuit Nederland geïnisieer is; die politieke konteks waarbinne die werk gedoen is; die verhouding tussen die Gereformeerde Kerke van Suid-Afrika (GKSA) en die Nederlandse sendende kerke, die Nederlands Gereformeerde Kerken. Die ontleding van die verloop van die sendinggeskiedenis poog om 'n bydrae te lewer tot 'n beter begrip van die somtyds problematiese verhouding tussen die GKSA en een van haar oorsese sendinggenote

In this article the Dutch roots of Reformed missionary work, based at Richmond (KZN) since 1960 are analysed. The following three aspects were investigated: the church-historical background of Dutch missionary work in KwaZulu-Natal; the political context within which the work was undertaken, the relationship between the Gereformeerde Kerke in Suid-Afrika (GKSA) and the Dutch churches that sent missionaries to KwaZulu-Natal, the Netherlands Reformed Churches (Nederlands Gereformeerde Kerken). The investigation undertaken in this article attempts to contribute to a deeper understanding of the sometimes uneasy relationship between the GKSA and one of her missionary partners from abroad.
