Justin Welby set to become new Archbishop of Canterbury

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-20242129


Bishop Welby became a bishop just last year

Bishop of Durham Justin Welby, a former oil industry worker, is set to become the next Archbishop of Canterbury.

It is thought the 56-year-old will be named on Friday as the replacement for Rowan Williams, who steps down in December after 10 years in the post.

Bishop Welby became a bishop only a year ago when he took up the Church of England's fourth most senior post.

Downing Street sources have confirmed the next archbishop will be formally announced on Friday morning.

1. The English - always so practical.

Modern economic approaches and traditional, ancient social ones.
