Andy John, who has served as the Bishop of Bangor for the past 13 years, has been chosen as the 14th Archbishop of Wales.
He succeeds Bishop John Davies who retired in May after four years as the leader of the Church in Wales.
Archbishop Andy was elected having secured a two-thirds majority vote from members of the Electoral College on the first day of its meeting at Holy Trinity Church, Llandrindod Wells. The election was immediately confirmed by the five other diocesan bishops and announced at the door of the church by the Provincial Secretary of the Church in Wales, Simon Lloyd.
The decision could have taken up to three days, but was made within a day. https://t.co/BCmq18Q5Yl
