Trip to Iona

Every year The Revd. Haydon Wilcox leads a holiday/pilgrimage to Iona in Scotland. This is the island where St. Columba founded his monastic order and took Christianity to Scotland and parts of northern England.
Staying at Bishop’s House, the Anglican Retreat House, there is the opportunity to join in the worship of the Iona Community at the famous Abbey. We have days out to Staffa to see Fingal’s Cave; wildlife exploring on the Island of Mull and walking the pilgrim’s path on Iona.  There’s the village dance to attend, the sea to swim in, beautiful beaches to chill out on, lots of craft shops to explore and many times to be still and relax.  A rhythm of worship is offered but not mandatory, in Bishop’s House and at the Abbey. The place is filled with history, beauty and treats like cream teas!  There is a great sense of safety travelling with a party, knowing that everything is organised, whilst having the freedom to do one’s own thing.  People often travel with their partner, who may not be particularly religious.  No pressure is put upon anyone and people of no faith are encouraged to pursue their interests like walking, photography, drawing and bird watching.  Bishop’s House offers an inclusive package and the accommodation is homely and welcoming.  The food is excellent, with special needs catered for.
