Welcome to the Official Site of Paisley Abbey

From its foundation in 1163 to the present day - worship in Paisley Abbey has been offered to God and hospitality extended to all pilgrims and visitors.
 
 
Paisley Abbey has as its core aims:
  • To offer worship to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • To welcome in Christ's name all who visit the Abbey for whatever reason.
  • To witness to the love of God within the community of Paisley.   
Paisley Abbey is a parish church of the Church of Scotland and the 'mother church' of Paisley.
 

 

PLEASE SUPPORT PAISLEY ABBEY

THROUGH THE PRESENT PANDEMIC

AND MAKE A DONATION TODAY 

Paisley Abbey continues to serve the people of Paisley and beyond through Sunday Services albeit it with limited numbers allowed and being open for Private Prayer on two afternoons per week and through caring for those in need of pastoral support. However, there is now no income from the hire of our buildings for events, concerts and meetings, no income from the gift shop and coffee shop, no donations from visitors.

The Church of Scotland has set up a way in which donations can be made either to the general funds of the Church, which have also been severely impacted by Coronavirus, or to an individual congregation such as Paisley Abbey. Simply click on the 'Donate' link below, scroll down the page, fill in ‘Gift Aid’ details if appropriate, and then, donate. THANK YOU.

The Fourth Cloister

Paisley Abbey is aiming to create an inspirational space that is open and welcoming to all the people of Paisley. Acting as a catalyst for the regeneration of Paisley, it is a hugely ambitious effort to restore the Abbey to its 15th century footprint and to expand the facilities available for community use.
