The Most Rev David Chillingworth, Bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church says:
“I warmly welcome the appointment of the Rt Rev Justin Welby as the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury. He brings to this task a wonderful range of gifts - spiritual, relational and intellectual - as well as his varied life experience. I have enjoyed and valued my contacts with him. In the early stages of what has become Continuing Indaba - a movement of honest conversation across difference - his wide knowledge of the Anglican Communion, particularly in Africa, was of great importance.
“The new Archbishop has accepted a calling for which no one could feel himself adequately equipped. The prayers of the Scottish Episcopal Church and of all the provinces of the Anglican Communion will be with him as he prepares to take up this ministry.”
