The Archbishop of Canterbury visits Norfolk and spends a lot of time in Norwich, Great Yarmouth and North Norfolk.

During his visit to the county, the recent Justin Welby will exchange his robes for a life jacket and set sail with Casiter Lifeboat, run a service in the Roman Catholic Cathedral and serve fish and chips.

The visit will take place from 7 to 9 November and is the archbishop's first visit to Norfolk for five years.

The archbishop begins his tour of the County of Norwich, where he will begin his day with a lunchtime service in the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.

It is believed that the archbishop of Canterbury spoke for the first time in the Catholic cathedral in Norwich.

From there, he walks through Norwich and visits various organizations before leaving for Norwich Cathedral at 19.00. Speakers from Norwich's sister city Koblenz, the Norwich Hebrew Congregation, the charity New Routes and the bishop of the Roman Catholic diocese of East Anglia meet there.

There will also be a "vigil for reconciliation" – a time of silent reflection and prayer after the event.

The following day, the archbishop drives to the coast, where he visits the Caister Lifeboat Station and heads to an 11 o'clock service before setting sail on a lifeboat.

In the evening, members of the public are invited to an evening of fish and chips with the archbishop, who is talking to BBC journalist Andrew Sinclair at the Great Yarmouth Minster.

The archbishop will finish his visit to Norfolk on Friday in Norfolk.

Bishop Graham said: "I am very pleased that Archbishop Justin will spend time in the diocese.

"Archbishop Justin knows Norfolk well; he spent a lot of time with family and friends during his childhood. His affection for Norfolk dates back to those early days, and I know he is guaranteed a warm welcome. "
