Clergy from Turkey meet the Archbishop of Canterbury in Istanbul

Canon Higgins and Canon Sherwood with Archbishop Justin Welby
The Archbishop of Canterbury recently made a quick two day visit to Istanbul at the invitation of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, His All Holiness Bartholomew I. The British Consul General, Mr Leigh Turner CMG, gave a reception in the Archbishop's honour at the Pera House, the historic centre of the British diplomatic mission to Turkey since Ottoman times. Among the guests were two of our own clergy in Turkey, the Revd Canon Ian Sherwood, the Chaplain of Christ Church with St Helena's, Istanbul, and the Revd Canon Dr John Higgins, the Priest-in-Charge of St Nicholas's, Ankara.
