Election at Llandrindod Wells

Church in Wales

A parish church in a Victorian spa town in the heart of Wales will host the election of the next Archbishop of Wales.

The doors of Holy Trinity Church in Llandrindod Wells will be locked for up to three days beginning Sept. 5 as the Electoral College meets inside to choose the 13th Archbishop of the Church in Wales.

The election follows the retirement of the Most Rev. Barry Morgan, who held the office for 14 years. His successor will be chosen from among the six serving Welsh diocesan bishops:
