Biographical Information

"The Reverend Canon Dr Andrew White is the Chaplain of St George’s Anglican Church in Baghdad, Iraq. He has led St George’s Church, in the heart of Baghdad, since 1998 and divides his time between Iraq and the UK. He is rarely at home in Hampshire and frequently has a packed speaking and preaching itinerary which takes him all over the UK as well as to North America.

"Canon Andrew is also the President of the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East which exists to support his unique work at St George’s and in reconciliation. When not in Baghdad or travelling, Andrew’s home base is in Hampshire with his wife Caroline and his two sons Jacob and Josiah...

"Andrew entered into politics, performing duties as a Wandsworth Borough Counsellor acting as Deputy Chairman of Social Services – the only Conservative politician who was also an Anglican priest at that time.

"In 1998, Andrew was installed as the Director of International Ministry for the Diocese and Cathedral of Coventry. Soon after he began to head Coventry’s international ministry of reconciliation, Andrew became the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Special Envoy to the Middle East – the first to take up the position since Terry Waite."
