Chapter Summary

In 2009 the Central Methodist Mission (CMM) was in many ways defined by the Refugee Ministry. This chapter introduces the CMM as a space containing different activities taking place in the busy building at the corner of Pritchard and Small Streets in inner-city Johannesburg. It introduces the two groups or communities, dwellers and members, that use the building and in different ways claim ownership over the space; and presented their relationships with each other. The co-existence of a major Refugee Ministry, which is in historical continuity with the ethos of the CMM, and the activities of a local congregation, shaped the dynamic space that the CMM was in 2009. The chapter examines Bishop Verryn's impact on the dynamics at the CMM and concentrates on the construction, reconstruction and deconstruction of exclusionary boundaries and bridges between the two groups.
