Rethinking ecclesiology and the COVID-19 pandemic in Malawi
This study discusses the phenomena of ecclesiology and the COVID-19 pandemic in Malawi. The study aims to investigate the resilience and adaptation of the church in Malawi to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. It used qualitative research methods: literature review and interviews. The study argues for the necessity of rethinking ecclesiology and the COVID-19 pandemic in Malawi in the following areas: (1) the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic; (2) Malawi government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic; (3) the importance of re-defining the being and doing of the church; and (4) the viability of house churches in the Malawian context. The study has one major implication: “maintaining the Biblical view of the being and doing of the Church given the dynamic changes brought by the COVID-19 pandemic in Malawi.”
