A FORMER Archbishop of Canterbury will speak during a week of bible teaching in Sidmouth in March.

The newly refurbished All Saints Church will host the 31st annual Keswick in Devon Bible Week from March 7 to 11.

Guest speaker this year will be former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey.

“Even though he is now retired, Lord Carey is still very active in the Christian ministry and it is expected that large numbers will want to hear him preach,” said event publicity secretary Felicity Wilson.

Lord Carey was inducted as Archbishop of Canterbury in 1991 and served for 11 years in the position.

Keswick in Devon meetings will be held twice a day during the event. All will be welcome.
