This thesis sets out to investigate what a theology viewed from a remigrant perspective might look like. The term remigrant' refers to what Conway and Potter allude to as the 1.5 (a person born in one country, emigrates to another country as a young child, and then returns back to their place of birth as an adult to resettle) and second generation migrants born in their host country. There is an urgent need to bring to light the challenging social-cultural and religious issues remigrants encounter when returning to their ethnic homeland. This investigation researches a completely new terrain that requires immediate theological exploration, conversation and what this means for Christian theology. Such a theology is a variation of the usual practice of a diasporic understanding of the Christian faith.
