Taung Link

For some 19 years now the Partnership Churches have enjoyed a close link with St Chad’s, Taung, in the Kimberley and Kuruman Diocese, in the Church of the Province of Southern Africa. Our local link is part of the link between the Diocese of Oxford and the Diocese of Kimberley and Kuruman. At our end the link is administered by a group drawn from each of our four congregations.



Joint Conference, July 2020


There is to be a joint conference in Oxford of the Oxford and Kimberley & Kuruman Dioceses next July 2020 – the dates and venue yet to be confirmed. In the expectation that we would be receiving some visitors from St. Chad’s at that time, the Link Group are seeking to raise funds to offer them a programme of hospitality after the Conference, and for this purpose are planning to hold an Exhibition of Arts and Crafts at St. Michael’s on Saturday, 9th November, from 10am – 6 pm. Members of the Partnership Churches and other friends are invited to exhibit homemade crafts of all sorts – these could either be for sale with a % towards the Taung Link Group funds, or marked ‘Not for Sale’. There will be entry fees, and coffee, lunches and teas will be served and sold throughout the day. Explanatory leaflets and entry forms are in the churches. For further information please ask your church representative, Sue Smith (St Michael’s), Rosemary Williams (St Peter’s), Gill Harper (Wolvercote Baptist Church) and Beryl Knotts (Summertown URC).
