The Apostolic Church of the Isles is an Eastern Hosian church centred in Qart Qildar and the leading church within the Apostolic Church of the East.

Led by the Patriarch of Qart Qildar, the Church of the Isles was founded by the merger of the Apostolic Department of Cildania and the Badaran Apostolic Church in 3981 following the Synod of Qart Qildar where the Patriarch was established as primus inter pares of the five patriarchs.

Despite practising the Kathuran Rite, the Church of the Isles includes many elements of the Selucian Rite (dominant in the Aurorian Patriarchal Church) and though it is the official liturgical language, Kathuran is rarely used in ceremonies. In addition to being the largest Hosian denomination in Cildania the Church of the Isles has a small but notable presence in Selucia and Badara.
