Clergy Day on Anglicanism

We had a stimulating Clergy day on 25th February 2016 as part of the process of contributing to the Anglican Prayer Book revision progress. Rev Dr Ananias Radebe of the Diocese of Matlosane led us in a presentation - giving his understanding of Anglicanism and its historical development. It led to quite lively discussion, with many different points of view being expressed about a range of issues! Please click to see the Presentation on Anglicanism.


The Diocese is organised into 5 departments, and the Parishes are grouped into 7 Archdeaconries


The Parishes tab at the top of this page will lead you to the Archdeaconries and the parishes that make up each Archdeaconry. Most of our parishes are made up of many chapelries and congregations, each of which has the same "status" - we do not have "mother churches" or "outstations".


The Departments are:

  1. The Bishop's Ministry

  2. Governance

  3. Growing the Church

  4. Development

  5. Organisations


The Parishes are organised into 7 Archdeaconries:

  1. Kopanong

  2. Lepelle

  3. Mopani

  4. Vhembe

  5. Waterberg

  6. West

  7. South West
