English: Research within the community which does not take into account the need and
knowledge of the community is not beneficial. Using the notion of the four squares
of knowledge, research was conducted in the informal housing community in
Mangaung. From the perspective of the congregation of the Christian church, the
congregation developed a strategy to get involved in the community. In this way
the poor were able to reach out to people in need and seek solutions from within.
This has a sound Biblical base.
