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
The Rt Revd Dr Keith Riglin was Consecrated on Saturday, 1st May 2021
The consecration of The Rev Canon Dr Keith Riglin as the new Bishop of Argyll & The Isles took place on Saturday 1 May in St John’s Cathedral, Oban.
The service was recorded and then broadcast on the Diocesan website and Facebook page. At a later date, dependent on Covid restrictions, he will be enthroned at The Cathedral of The Isles on Cumbrae.
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.
