Job description

Are you looking for the chance to do something different and find a counter-cultural way to live and work? The Iona Community is recruiting for mainly seasonal staff to live-in and re-open the newly refurbished Iona Abbey to guests in spring 2021.  

 The Sacristan is the key player, along with the Warden, in looking after the Abbey church and ensuring it is ready and prepared for a wide range of services and worship in a Covid preventive way. This will include ensuring the premises are clean and tidy, checking the sound system, preparing any additional equipment like collection plates or orders of service, organising online booking, making sure those leading worship are trained/equipped and have what they need and that all worship resources are in good order.  

We are looking for someone with good attention to detail, a calm and friendly manner and a live interest in creative worship.  

Staffing at Iona Abbey is provided by a resident team who live and work together sharing in the common life assisted by a wider team of volunteers. Work and worship are valued equally at our centres. A resident allowance is paid and all accommodation and meals are provided. Previous staff say their time at our centres has been ‘life-changing’. We hope to welcome your application soon.
