Archbishop to visit South Sudan and Great Lakes
Monday 27th January 2014
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will visit South Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo to meet Primates of the Anglican Communion, in a five-day visit to the region starting on Thursday this week.
During his first 18 months in office, Archbishop Justin plans to visit all of his fellow Archbishops around the Anglican Communion. His desire is to express solidarity, build personal and professional bonds, understand the Primates’ work in their local contexts, and lay foundations for good collaboration over the coming years.
Archbishop Justin spoke this week about the church’s role in promoting reconciliation in areas of conflict in this interview with BBC HARDTalk: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/bigscreen/tv/episode/b03v4k3h/
