Mosetlha Lutheran

August 2011 / Mosetlha Lutheran Church / Makapanstad, North West Province / South Africa

Church is an important facet of the religious and social life of rural South Africa; they are among the most well-kept buildings in the village. Energetic Sunday services often last three or more hours and feature loud music and fervent prayer.

While 80% of South Africans identify as Christian, spirituality in South Africa synthesizes Christian and traditional belief systems. Many South Africans seek the counsel of a sangoma, a traditional healer, in matters of spirituality and health; fear of witchcraft is not uncommon.
