The Archbishop of Canterbury has confirmed he will be visiting the Diocese of Lichfield.

The Most Revd and Rt Hon Dr Rowan Williams will visit the Black Country, Shropshire and Staffordshire during his four-day visit between November 5 and 8.

The Bishop of Lichfield, the Rt Revd Jonathan Gledhill, said:

“The Archbishop’s role is international, as leader of the Anglican Communion; local, as diocesan bishop of Canterbury ; and national as Primate of England. His leadership is a gift to the nation and to the Church, so we’re delighted that he has found it possible to spend so much time with us during this extended visit.

“I am looking forward to hearing what Archbishop Rowan has to say to us on the important issues facing the church and I’m especially looking forward to showing him the diversity of our diocese – both in terms of our churches and our local area.  This will be a high-profile visit which will bring national attention to the wonderful towns, cities and villages that make up our diocese.”
