This study offers a critical insight into the practice of theology and pedagogy with marginalised members of society with regards to what liberative praxis may mean as part of everyday living. Its characteristic feature is that it adopts a womanist approach to the process of constructing a new theological pedagogy in collaboration with British African-Caribbean women. In a manner suitable for the British context it centres the educational experiences and connected knowing of marginalised British Christian African-Caribbean women, as a resource for addressing complex issues in society. Accordingly, the experiences and wisdom of these Black women passionate about justice, freedom, spiritual development and relationships provide the raw material for this articulation of a liberative Spirit-led pedagogy. A process described as ‘womanistization’. The result is a broad and inclusive approach to research and biblical hermeneutics. The researcher and researched engage in dialogue as open and honest ‘candid participants’ employing their experiential imagination and wisdom to re-read scripture and translate their renewed faith into liberative action.
