The Archbishop, who is due to be enthroned at Canterbury Cathedral, added that he had “particular friends where I recognise that and am deeply challenged by it”.

In a separate interview with Channel 5 News, the Most Rev Welby said he believed there would be a female archbishop one day in spite of the defeat of women bishops legislation last November.

Pressed on the timing, he said: “Oh, I have no idea… when the right person turns up. But, yes, I think there certainly will.”His remarks came as he was due to begin his public ministry as head of the Church of England, spiritual leader of the 77-million strong Anglican Communion and 105th Archbishop of Canterbury.

He added that his views had been affected by ‘particular friends where I recognise that and am deeply challenged by it’.

After being publicly criticised by Mr Tatchell for speaking out against the legalisation of same-sex marriage, Mr Welby emailed him thanking him for the ‘very thoughtful’ open letter and offering to meet to discuss the issue ‘without the mediation of the press’.

The service will also include an African element, reflecting the Archbishop’s ties with the continent through his former job as an oil executive and most recently in peace and reconciliation work.

The Archbishop of Burundi, Bernard Ntahoturi, will pronounce a blessing in French and African dancers will perform before the Gospel is read at the service.

Other personal touches include the choice of Mr Welby’s robes for the service.

He will wear colourful vestments originally designed and made for the late Bishop of Peterborough, Ian Cundy, who was the Most Rev Welby’s tutor at Cranmer Hall, Durham, where he trained in preparation for ordination between 1989 and 1992 after leaving the oil industry.

Westminster Cathedral organist Matthew Martin will perform an organ improvisation during the service when five representatives from the worldwide Anglican Communion place symbols representing their region on the high altar of Canterbury Cathedral.

During the service, Mr Welby will be asked to make the declaration of assent, outlining his loyalty to the Church of England, by the Archbishop of York John Sentamu.

He will then be asked by Mr Willis to swear an oath of faithfulness on the Canterbury Gospels, brought to Britain by St Augustine in 597.

The service will feature a newly commissioned anthem using the opening words of the Rule of St Benedict set to music by the composer Michael Berkeley.

The ceremony coincides with the feast day of St Benedict of Monte Cassino, a significant figure for both Canterbury Cathedral – which was once a Benedictine monastery – and Mr Welby, who is an oblate of the Order of Benedict.

 While it is less hardline than other denominations such as the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of England is firmly opposed to gay sex and same-sex marriage.

Liberal Anglicans in North America, on the other hand, have appointed gay priests and bishops, leading to a serious deterioration in ties between the various branches of the church.The service is set to feature African dancers, Punjabi music, a blessing from an African archbishop and even improvised organ music, as Mr Welby seeks to put his own stamp on the venerable office. more

Holy Trinity Brompton, the evangelical HQ that claims the new primate as one of its own

This church it has little time for the reverence often found in traditional Anglican parishes for historical churches, fussy vestments and formal liturgy.

From the street, Holy Trinity Brompton – known universally in Anglican circles as HTB – hides its light under a bushel. This run-of-the-mill Victorian church and its ancillary office blocks are tucked away up a long, leaf-strewn driveway in Knightsbridge in central London, screened by the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Brompton Oratory, last bastion of traditional Roman Catholicism.

But the modest setting is just about the only thing that is low-key about HTB. Since the early 1980s it has been exporting a noisy mini-reformation to the rest of the Church of England, with its rock-band style of worship, social activism and unabashed evangelical drive to make converts. Where many other inner-city parish churches attract an ageing congregation of 20, HTB packs in several thousand on this site and two neighbouring overspills. Indeed, such is the demand that it has also “planted” itself (a polite way of saying taken over) in 20 other churches across the capital, with similar results.

Then there is its Alpha course – “informal, friendly and fun”, according to the literature I’m given in the HTB’s basement bookshop-cum-coffee bar. A free 11-week programme of after-dinner talks on “Who is Jesus?” and “How Do I Pray?”, it is aimed squarely at nonbelievers and is credited with bringing tens of thousands to the faith. It has been widely copied. Worldwide, an estimated 19 million people are said to have given it a try.
