The Iona Community as an organisation is a charity, registered in Scotland with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
All that we do as an organisation is summed up in our charitable purposes which are directed towards the renewal of the life and worship of the Church, the development of the whole person through reflection, education and training, and work with young people.
The programmes we offer will seek:
- To create spaces in which people are free to explore life’s meaning and purpose in the company of others; and to develop expressions of this in acts of worship;
- To share insights from an extensive history of spirituality and activism, with people of all faiths and none who are working for justice and peace;
- To resource, support, and connect together people for whom faith leads to commitment and action for peace, social and environmental justice;
- To nurture and resource people from diverse backgrounds for a life of service and social, political, and environmental engagement;
The Trustees of the charity are the elected Members of Council.
Day to day responsibility for the running of the organisation is in the hands of the Leader, Michael Marten, and a small staff team based in Glasgow, on Iona, and at Camas.
