Church Twinning

Abingdon is twinned with five continental towns. Argentan and Colmar (France), Sint Niklaas (Belgium), Lucca (Italy) and Schongau (Germany). There are also links with Abingdon, Virginia, USA. Town Twinning developed as a way of overcoming divisions and contributing to peace in Europe after WW2, by extending Friendship, Hospitality and Goodwill.
 
The Church in Abingdon Church Twinning Group is an associate member of Abingdon and District Twin Town Society (ADTTS) and most Abingdon Churches have one or two representatives. The group's objectives are to nurture friendship and knowledge between our own Churches and the Churches of our twin towns. Exchange visits are regularly arranged, staying with host families.
