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 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.
Resumption of Sunday Worship April 2021
The easing of some restrictions means we are able to
resume congregational worship on a Sunday, with two services
taking place at 10.30am and 12noon. Booking a place at a service
is essential and this must be done in advance. There are still
limitations on numbers attending, social distancing and the
wearing of facemasks is also required, congregational singing is
not permitted at the moment. These measures will be in place for
the foreseeable future.
Booking a place at a service should be made by 2pm on the
Thursday prior to the Sunday service by emailing
email@example.com or leaving a message and contact
details on 0141 889 7654. Please note the office will be operating
on reduced hours and we will confirm your booking as soon as
The Abbey will not be open during the week for visitors and the
Gift Shop and Cafe remain closed at this time.

Her Majesty The Queen and members of the
Royal Family and for the generation that will grieve the
passing of an era of personal devotion and outstanding
service to Queen and country.

The vacancy has arisen following the retiral of our previous minister who has led us for over 32 years. We have been given permission by Clyde Presbytery to call a new minister on unrestricted tenure.
We are looking for a Minister who will lead us into the future in our new environment whilst respecting our history and musical tradition. The Abbey is a community-based church at the heart of Paisley. The Abbey Minister plays an important and active role in civic events such as Armed Forces Day, Royal Visits, Kirking of the Council and other special services.

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.
