The Bishop of Swansea and Brecon, John Davies, was elected as the 13th Archbishop of Wales in September and his enthronement will take place at a national service in Brecon Cathedral.
Rev Cannon Carol Wardman , from the Church in Wales told Premier what he will bring to the role.
“He’s got a very keen interest in the way that the Church and the outside world interact.
“He’s a lawyer by background so he brings all that trained mind and ability to get his head around a subject very quickly into play,” she said.
Cannon Wardman added: “He’s got a terrific sense of humour.
“He’s been a great fun to work with over the last six, seven years and I’m looking forward to working with him in the future as archbishop.”
Archbishop John will be led into the Cathedral by a long procession which will include clergy, visiting bishops, diocesan legal officers, ecumenical and interfaith guests and representatives of academic institutions.
During the service the Archbishop will be placed in the Archiepiscopal chair (or throne) by the Bishop of Bangor, the Senior Bishop, who will then present him to the congregation.
The Archiepiscopal chair is a wooden replica of the Chair of St Augustine in Canterbury Cathedral, and was a gift from the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1920 when, at its disestablishment, the Church in Wales became a separate Province of the Anglican…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
