Archbishop Justin Welby set for return visit to Norwich 

The Archbishop of Canterbury is set to visit the Diocese of Norwich for the first time since his enthronement to the role in February 2013.

The Most Rev Justin Welby will be visiting the Diocese of Norwich from Wednesday November 7 to Friday November 9, the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Rev Graham James, has announced.
Bishop Graham said: “I’m delighted that Archbishop Justin will be spending time in the Diocese in November.  His first public appearance in the run-up to his enthronement as Archbishop of Canterbury took place here in Norwich in February 2013 and it will be a delight to welcome him back. 
“Archbishop Justin knows Norfolk well, having spent a good deal of time here with members of his family and their friends during his childhood.  His affection for Norfolk dates from those early days, and I know that he will be assured a warm welcome. The content of his programme is not yet finalised but as soon as we have details we will publicise them widely.”
