Holy Troublemakers 13th – 19th April 2024
How do we fashion new ways to confront power?
What are the lessons from the life of Jesus that might inform our actions today?
Against a background of looming recession, climate crisis and resurgent populism, we will draw strength and inspiration from effective, non-violent protests in Scotland and beyond.
Linking the gospel stories with the Holy Troublemakers of the modern world, we will offer a toolkit for faith-based activism and uncover a radical Christianity rooted in moral bravery, solidarity and love for others.
Led by the Iona Abbey Programme Team.
We look forward to welcoming you to Iona Abbey in 2024.
6 Nights: £762 per adult, £381 for reduced rate – see our programme page for more information.
