Welby before father revelations: 'My identity is in Jesus Christ and you'll see why in a few days time'

Footage of Justin Welby telling a group of young people his identity was in Jesus Christ and "you'll see why I'm saying that in a few days time" has emerged as it has been revealed his biological father is not Gavin Welby.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has discovered that his biological father is Sir Winston Churchill's last private secretary the late Sir Anthony Montague Browne.

He smiled as he made the comment when he spoke at a youth centre in Lusaka, Zambia on Thursday afternoon.

The Most Rev Justin Welby is visiting the country for the 16th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council - a meeting to discuss the direction of the church.

For me I am who I am because I am in Jesus Christ. That's the only thing that gives me identity and you'll see why I'm saying that in a few days time.

– Justin Welby
