The longest-serving Archbishop in the Anglican Communion, Dr Barry Morgan, is stepping down this week as leader of the Church in Wales, as he marks his 70th birthday. More than 500 people attended an emotional farewell service at Llandaff Cathedral in Cardiff, in celebration and thanksgiving for the contribution made by Dr Morgan during his years at the helm - nearly 14 as Archbishop and 17 as Bishop. In his sermon, the Archbishop told the congregation it had been an “enormous privilege” to have served them and he thanked people for their support. He, in turn, was thanked warmly for all his ministry and given a standing ovation.
