We are full Members, Associate, Youth and Staff Members, Volunteers and Friends of the Iona Community. What we share, expressed in many different ways, is an experience of the liberating power of Jesus Christ, and a commitment to the personal and social transformation that spring from the vision and values of the gospel.

Members share a common Rule which includes:

  • Daily prayer and reading the Bible
  • Mutual sharing and accountability for our use of time and money
  • Regular meeting together
  • Action and reflection for justice, peace and the integrity of creation

Members meet regularly throughout the year in local groups and in 4 plenary gatherings, including a week on Iona.
