WAACSA grew quickly by word of mouth, and today has approximately 300 Members and Friends throughout South Africa. There are currently three branches: Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal, and the Western Cape. Members’ meetings and/or public lectures are held regularly in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.
A mission statement was finalised in October 2011, and our former name (We Are Church) was changed. The Mission Statement was sent to the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC), who responded by suggesting that WAACSA meet with the SACBC’s Theological Advisory Commission. Two meetings were held following which Archbishop Jabulani Nxumalo recommended that there be further engagement between the bishops and WAACSA on ways in which the movement might take its legitimate place in the life of the Church. A meeting with the bishops was requested but denied.
