dc.description.abstract The Western Province Council of Churches (WPCC) is an ecumenical organisation based in Cape Town which promotes ideals of justice. From 1971 to 1995 it was a branch of the South African Council of Churches. The WPCC regards itself as a non-governmental organisation (NGO), and it is part of the NGO sector. It is funded by foreign donor agencies. This thesis studies the transformation of the WPCC as an organisation. This occurred as a direct result of the political transition in South Africa between 1990 and 1994. The main forces pressing change upon the WPCC during this period were: (i) its commitment to retain relevance in a changing political and social environment according to the principles of contextual theology; (ii) its need to adapt its mode of operation following considerable changes in the context of its work; and, (iii) the most powerful force, the influence of foreign funding agencies upon the nature of its activities. en_ZA
