WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WELCOME YOU.

 Sunday 11th March 2018 10am

 We are a community, a source of love,

Laughter and sharer of tears.

We are a people prepared to take risks,

Working together, that one day this world will be a place,

where people can live in peace, justice and freedom.

This is our hope, this is our faith,

that we dare to believe, always and in spite of everything,

in God’s power to transform.                                    Anon; ©Iona Community
