Archbishop of Canterbury visits Soul Survivor festival

The Most Revd Justin Welby spent around 24 hours at the event near Stafford where he took part in a Q&A session, posed for selfies and led a communion service.

Speaking on Premier's 'News Hour', team leader Ali Martin said: "we got him in all sorts of ways..and one of the ways was that he was just involved in inviting the Holy Spirit just to come and rest on the young people and to administer to them .He did it beautifully; there was a real gentilness and grace with that, that was special."

The Soul Survivor gig brings young people together for worship, teaching and ministry over 5 days with topics as varied as preparing for leadership, sexuality and justice.

Archbishop Justin also tweeted from the event himself:
