The new Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Revd Justin Welby, was interviewed by Donna Birrell for her Sunday Programme on BBC Radio Cornwall yesterday.

Archbishop Justin will be in Truro Cathedral from 10.30am – 3.30pm on Monday 18 March as part of his ‘Journey in Prayer’ prior to his enthronement in Canterbury Cathedral on 21 March.

During the interview, Archbishop Justin showed a great awareness of the major challenges being faced by local communities across Cornwall and spoke of his willingness to help the Church and other agencies to address the problems they face.

He explained that the focus of the activities in the Cathedral was to pray for local needs and he emphasised that his invitation was to anyone and everyone to join him in a prayerful environment to seek guidance from God as to what is to be done to meet present needs and to grow the Church.
