Iona and Camas

Being part of the Resident Staff at the Island Centres is not simply taking on a job – it is taking on a way of life, sharing in the Community’s ministry of hospitality and a common life of work and worship. Resident Staff Members take on specific responsibilities for the running of certain functions within the Community, which encompass a range of skills and experience. We ask that applicants be in sympathy with the aims and purpose of the Iona Community and recognise that living in community is not simply doing a job but sharing in common life responsibilities which includes welcoming guests, building community and daily worship where appropriate. 

The 2019 season on Iona will be like no other previous season, due to the absence of residential programmes in the Abbey while a major refurbishment programme is carried out. The Abbey is due to reopen to guests at Easter 2020: meanwhile the MacLeod Centre is also closed. At the same time the Iona Community continues to offer hospitality to visitors to the island through the worship in the Abbey Church, our shop and through providing information sessions for groups and individuals interested in the work. We also continue to work in partnership with our neighbours on the island of Iona. In 2019 there will be a small resident staff team who will be responsible for these areas of work and for preparing for the reopening to guests in 2020.
