Welcome to The United Diocese of Argyll and The Isles

The United Diocese of Argyll and The Isles is one of the seven historic Dioceses of the Scottish Episcopal Church

With two Cathedrals ~ St John the Divine, in Oban, and The Cathedral of The Isles, on the Isle of Cumbrae, the Diocese extends from Iona to Glencoe and from Lewis and the Western Isles to Kintyre and Arran.

This breathtakingly beautiful region is covered by many Episcopalian churches each offering a warm, unique welcome to worship and community

Worship in our Diocesan Churches 

We  are delighted that both Cathedrals and most of our churches are now able to offer communal worship whilst abiding by all the restrictions to ensure that we keep ourselves and those with us as safe as possible. Please contact individual churches to find out their times of worship. The full Provincial guidelines can be found at  https://www.scotland.anglican.org/coronavirus-updates/
