Justin Welby - Archbishop of Canterbury

The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, was born in 1956 and studied in Cambridge before entering the oil industry, where he worked for 11 years.

In 1989, after sensing a call from God, he left industry to train for ordination. His ministry has combined commitment to his parish communities with Church work around the world, especially in areas of conflict. He served most recently as Dean of Liverpool Cathedral and then Bishop of Durham before becoming Archbishop of Canterbury in February 2013.
