Meeting on Cumbrae #pisky

Cumbrae Cumbrae Warden

Overnight on the island of Great Cumbrae with the College of Bishops this week. If you don’t know Scotland, Cumbrae is an island in the middle of the Clyde so you get that ‘away from it all’ feeling. We try to use and support our Retreat and Conference Centre there, the College of the Holy Spirit, which is linked to the Cathedral of the Isles – smallest cathedral in Britain. The College is beautiful – Butterfield – as if the Scottish Episcopal Church set in stone. We met the new Warden, Andrew Wright and his wife Amanda who have just taken up their post there. I brought the Brompton – hoping to do the 10 mile cycle round the island – but it failed to make the somewhat lengthy agenda.
