Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a discussion about leaving the churches that opens up a whole new area of study which needs to be explored in far more detail. Both His People church and Grace Bible church placed a lot of emphasis on helping people manage their work experiences by providing them with networks, mentoring programmes and sermons that taught people how to deal with the world of work and motivated them to excel. Two important forms of change have taken place amongst previously disadvantaged communities in post-apartheid South Africa; the reformation of family with the nuclear family as the ideal and the entry of women into professional careers. In both cases Pentecostal Charismatic Christian (PCC) was playing a significant role in these identity and cultural shifts as secular ideas of the individual, capitalist success and the nuclear family were recoded and understood in religious terms of purpose and spiritual blessing.
