dc.description.abstract For 200 years the spirituality of the coloured people of Suurbraak was formed through an identity of marginalisation – a marginalisation that impacted on their lives on the political, economic and social levels. In this article, the present and historical forms of this spirituality are traced and described in terms of Dirkie Smit’s paradigm for a Reformed spirituality. Although the spirituality of the people of Suurbraak was found to be both creative and Reformed, it was also found that this spirituality lacks a liberating side and has contributed to the marginalisation of the identity of the people. A new liberation paradigm in line with Gustavo Gutiérrez’s paradigm of a liberation spirituality is suggested to help coloured people to eradicate their own marginalisation. The presupposition to this article is that the total participation of coloured people as Africans in South Africa can only take place when they themselves take the intiative in re-identifying themselves in the effort to achieve de-marginalisation. en
