The new Archbishop of Wales, John Davies, will be enthroned at Brecon Cathedral this afternoon.

The Bishop of Swansea and Brecon, John Davies, was elected as the thirteenth Archbishop of Wales in September.

During today's service he will be placed in the Archiepiscopal chair and presented to the congregation. The chair, or throne, is a wooden replica of the Chair of St Augustine in Canterbury Cathedral, and was given to the Church in Wales in 1920.

Today's service is expected to last an hour.
