Background: The first visit to China by an Archbishop of Canterbury - the spiritual leader of the world's 64 million Anglican Christians - is due to begin on Friday (8 January). The Archbishop, Dr. Robert Runcie, will be visiting China as part of an 18-day tour that has included a private visit to Burma and a four-day tour of Hong Kong. On Tuesday (5 January) the second day of his Hong Kong visit, Dr. Runcie, who's 60, visited a primary school and clinic. Both, in the Shekkipmei district are attached to a church, St. Thomas's.
