The essence of ALMA is relationships, and links between individual parishes, schools or other organisations are an important part of ALMA’s work. There are over 50 links at the moment.

Current Links

Currently there are 43 London parishes twinned with parishes in Angola (9), Lebombo (13), Nampula (2) and Niassa (13). Seven schools are formally twinned and others are developing connections.

Where available, a hyperlink will take you to a reflection and brief history of the link, written by the parishes concerned - preferably, both sides.

There are maps showing the location of each linked parish or school:

Becoming a Link Parish

There are parishes in Lebombo, Niassa and Angola currently wanting to link with a parish in London. If you think your parish might be interested, why not contact the ALMA Twinning Officer to talk about this further. See the current list of those wanting a link.

In setting up a link, it is very helpful to have a profile of your organisation available. Here are some guidelines for creating a profile - choose the parish or school profile as appropriate.
