I am delighted to tell you that Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury will be coming to our group of parishes on Thursday 8th November!
Everyone is welcome to Happisburgh church as he comes to lead a short time of prayer for our villages.
Please be seated by 9.30am.
Archbishop Justin is coming to visit the Diocese of Norwich for 3 days, from 7th to 9th November, and we are thrilled that he will stop in Happisburgh as part of his tour of east Norfolk.
Further details about parking arrangements will follow next month, but it would be wonderful to have a full church as we welcome him to our area.
So please put the date in your diary, and come along!
Justin has been the Archbishop of Canterbury since 2013. Before ordination, he worked in the oil industry, becoming group treasurer of a large British exploration and production company.
Archbishop Justin conducted the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan in May this year, and is often in the news, contributing to debates on social, environmental and welfare issues, many of which are explored in his latest book, “Reimagining Britain. Foundations for hope”.
He has a love of Norfolk and ‘knows Norfolk well, having spent a good deal of time here with members of his family and their friends during his childhood.’
It is a real honour to have him with us, and we look forward to welcoming him!
