The Church in Wales' electoral college, which met on 28 April 2003 at Holy Trinity Church, Llandrindod, has elected the Rt Revd Dr Barry Morgan, Bishop of Llandaff, as the next Archbishop of Wales.
Commenting after the announcement of his election as Archbishop of Wales, Bishop Barry Morgan said, "I am privileged to have been elected to this post but at the same time I am very well aware of the challenges which face the Church in Wales. Society is changing very quickly and the church needs to explore ways in which it can continue to conduct its ministry and mission in 21st Century Wales."
The electoral college was convened following the translation of the Most Revd Dr Rowan Williams to the See of Canterbury.
