St Matthew’s Church

Built in 1906, some consider St Matthew’s to be the most significant Art Nouveau church in Scotland.

A hidden gem of Paisley, St Matthew’s Church bears comparison with Mackintosh’s Queen Church and was once stated by a national newspaper to ‘…out-Mackintosh the much-cherished church that Charlie built…’.

Upon arrival you will notice the striking stain glassed windows, St Matthew’s is known for. The magnificent church organ installed in 1907 is another outstanding feature waiting to behold.

This amazing space presents a staggered programme of heritage, arts and cultural events throughout the year with regular community events representing the rich built history St Matthew’s was built on.

In a town that sees creeping influences of Mackintosh and Thomson amongst others, it very much extends the structural beauty of Glasgow to its neighbour in the west.
