This Sunday 25th June Canon Andrew White will be joining us for our 11:00am service and our evening 6:30pm service.
Andrew White (born 1964) was the vicar of St George’s Church, Baghdad, the only Anglican church in Iraq, until his departure, ordered in November 2014 by the Archbishop of Canterbury due to security concerns. He was dubbed the “Vicar of Baghdad” following a documentary in 2013. Former president of the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East. He was previously Director of International Ministry at the International Centre for Reconciliation at Coventry Cathedral, England. He qualified and worked as an operating department practitioner prior to becoming ordained. At the age of 33 years he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a condition which for many years affected his mobility and his speech. He has been undergoing a new stem cell treatment for MS at a clinic in Baghdad that utilizes his body’s own stem cells and he has said, “It had completely transformed my life.”
