Abstract

The presence of African churches in Europe is a recent phenomenon that accompanies elatively, following them closely, waves of African migration. Far from being the result of an African missionary enterprise, the establishment of the first church was at the initiative of the migrants themselves and responded to a request for supervision of African Christians who formed the first meetings in exile.
