Welcome to The United Diocese of Argyll and The Isles
Argyll and The Isles is one of the seven historic Dioceses of the Scottish Episcopal Church. With Cathedrals in Oban and on the Isle of Cumbrae, the Diocese extends from Iona as far inland as Glencoe and from Lewis and the Western Isles south to Kintyre and Arran. This breathtakingly beautiful region is covered by many Episcopalian churches, each offering a warm welcome with its own unique character.
New Bishop elected for Argyll & The Isles
January 30, 2021
In a historic first online episcopal election, the Diocese of Argyll & The Isles has chosen a new Bishop.
The Rev Canon Dr Keith Riglin was selected by the Electoral Synod from a short-list of three candidates, and will fill the vacancy brought about by the translation of the Rt Rev Kevin Pearson to the Diocese of Glasgow & Galloway last year.
The successful outcome also means that the College of Bishops will now have a full complement of seven Bishops for the first time since 2016.
