Archbishop of Canterbury comes home

Published Monday, 19 March 2018

Lambeth Palace has released details of a visit by the Archbishop of Canterbury to Coventry and Warwickshire in May.

The Diocese of Coventry

The Most Reverend Justin Welby will be meeting people throughout the city and county which profoundly shaped his mission and ministry for fifteen years.

Archbishop Justin is returning home to help celebrate the Centenary of the Diocese of Coventry. 

He is returning to Coventry and Warwickshire at the invitation of the Bishop of Coventry, who says: 

"It's very exciting to be able to welcome the Archbishop of Canterbury back to the Diocese he knows so well as part of our centenary celebrations. 

"There's much that's new that we're looking forward to showing Archbishop Justin but we also want to celebrate the way that we're trying today what our forebears did in the past – to live out the reconciling, transforming, life-affirming love of God and to share it with all the people of Coventry and Warwickshire." 

From 2 to 5 May, Archbishop Justin will be meeting various people in the city such as civic and religious leaders, refugees, and school children.

The general public will also have an opportunity to hear and meet the archbishop at three events:

• Hog roast at Grange Farm, Grandborough. 

• 'Ask the Archbishop'.

• Centenary Festival at Coventry Cathedral.  

Admission to all three events are free of charge, and further information can be found online at
