Christianity, secondly, his robust exhortations to us as to our tasks as Christians, thirdly, his delightful Celtic personality, and fourthly, his most precious time.

The Synod also thanks the Archbishop’s wife, Lady Christine Eames, for her presence amongst us and her contributions in her role as the International President of the Mothers’ Union.

The motion was carried with acclamation, the Synod standing.
