Bishops: Church in Wales

The Church in Wales is a member of the Anglican Communion and, therefore, recognises the primacy of the Archbishop of Canterbury as the spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion. Unlike the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, who are appointed by The Queen upon the advice of the Prime Minister, the Archbishop of Wales is one of the six diocesan bishops of Wales, elected to hold this office in addition to his own diocese.

The styles of address for the bishops of the Church in Wales are as for diocesan bishops of the Church of England.

A bishop of the Church in Wales also signs, after a cross, his Christian name and diocese. The Bishop of Llandaff (if he is currently the Archbishop of Wales) would sign as ‘Landav’; the other bishops sign by the usual spelling of the diocese.
