This magnificent building is embarking on a bright new future as a landmark entertainment and events venue.
The Coats family built the church in 1894 in memory of Thomas Coats – a philanthropist and devout Baptist committed to the wellbeing of Paisley. Initially budgeted at £20,000, costs soared to an estimated £110,000 – over £6,000,000 today.
And once you get inside, you can see why! A church on one level, halls beneath and an eight-arched church crown spire combined to make it largest and most opulent Baptist Church in Britain.
Now, Coats Paisley is transitioning to become a multi-functional entertainment hub in a truly unique and stunning setting.
