The Most Reverend Justin Welby spent Monday in Hereford before heading for Shropshire today.
He began the day at St Laurence's Church, where launched the Hereford Diocese ‘Mission & Mortar’ digital tool kit - designed to help parishioners rejuvenate their church buildings - joking: “No-one has given me a bottle of champagne, how can you launch anything without a bottle of champagne.”
The Archbishop has left Ludlow but will be back this evening. In the meantime he is visiting a farm near Much Wenlock, a community centre in Telford, and going on a prayer walk at Clee Hill with a youth group from Cleobury Mortimer pic.twitter.com/3nA2Dr6nGV— Keri Trigg (@KeriTrigg_LDR) October 15, 2019
The archbishop then spent lunchtime with farmers at a 'butty van' on a farm near Much Wenlock, before heading for the Sutton Hill Community Centre in Telford. He was then stretching his legs on a prayer walk up Clee Hill with a youth group from Cleobury Mortimer.
In the evening, the archbishop will share a drink with people at Ludlow Brewery, at a ‘Setting God’s People Free’ event, an initiative which helps people live a Christian life.
