Abstract:This article seeks to explore the origins and development of the variant branches of South African Presbyterianism, originating in Scotland in the context of mission and migration. All mission involves migration, primarily as a physical, geographical movement. But there are other forms of migration that take place within the context; these are social, economic, political, cultural and spiritual. They are not distinct aspects of migration. They constantly and unremittingly impacted upon each other within a colonial context throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Dates of congregations' formation are normally given in parenthesis to indicate the time and space dimensions of missionary migration. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
