The Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby became the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2013. He was previously Bishop of Durham, Dean of Liverpool Cathedral and a Canon of Coventry Cathedral, where he worked extensively in the field of reconciliation.
Upon taking office, Archbishop Justin announced three personal priorities for his ministry:
- A renewal of prayer and Religious life throughout the church
- Seeking reconciliation within the church, and supporting the Church in its role as a peacemaker
- Encouraging every Christian to share their faith and see themselves as a witness to Jesus Christ
These priorities are central to everything the Archbishop does.
