Dr Rowan Williams steps down today after a decade as Archbishop of Canterbury and leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion. He will be replaced by Justin Welby, the current Bishop of Durham.
He is the 104th Archbishop and has been in office at a time when the church faces internal problems and society comes to terms with global terrorism and recession. He spoke to Sangeeta Bhabra in his last interview with Meridian before he becomes Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge.
