dc.description.abstract This document seeks to discuss how the role of the church in Johannesburg inner-city has changed through time. The fi rst sections trace the establishment of churches in the inner-city. This is followed by a discussion of the current realities in the inner-city including international migration which is giving rise to culturally cosmopolitan society in which urban ethnic spaces are emerging, often in the form of ethnic ghettos. Both formal and informal spaces of worship and religious organizations in the inner-city are mapped to help understand the contexts’ sacredness, urban culture and contemporary needs. The concluding sections discuss the ways in which the role of churches are likely to change in the inner-city in future. The document is concluded with a architectural proposal on how the church could deal with the challenges faced in Johannesburg inner-city today and in the future en_US
