Work with us
People from different walks of life and traditions in the church committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ and where that leads. 
Island Centres / Stay With Us
Our centres are places of welcome and hospitality where individuals and groups take part in weeks on a variety of themes with an exciting range of leaders.
Support Us
The Community greatly appreciates and depends on the support, interest, prayers and encouragement it receives from so many people throughout the world.

The Iona Community is a dispersed Christian ecumenical community working for peace and social justice, rebuilding of community and the renewal of worship.

We are people from different walks of life and different traditions in the Church engaged together, and with people of goodwill across the world, in acting, reflecting and praying for justice, peace and the integrity of creation; convinced that the inclusive community we seek must be embodied in the community we practice.

Phone and internet outage on Iona. Due to a lightning strike we are currently without telephones and internet in our Welcome Centre Offices and consequently cannot at the moment take calls or deal with emails. Please bear with us as we wait for the necessary repairs to the phone lines to be completed – once we are connected again we will clear the backlogs as quickly as possible. In the meantime thank you for your patience.

More than welcome

For more than 50 years, the Iona Community has welcomed folk to its centres on Iona, Mull, and in Glasgow – to share its daily life of prayer, work, creativity, song and storytelling, and all the challenges and joys of our world. Over the last three years, the Community has raised the money to invest in a major renovation and upgrading of the Iona Abbey Centre accommodation to make it more accessible, sustainable and flexible. We are thrilled that this project is nearing its completion, and we are delighted to invite you to come and stay with us in 2020. Click on  ‘Island Programme’  button at the top of the page for links to details of the 2020 programme, prices, subsidies, and of how to book 24th

Recruitment for 2020 volunteers on Iona is now open. For more information see the volunteer page
