Coats Memorial Church Reviews & Ratings
I was part of a fund raising choir singing to help raise funds to preserve the building. There were three choirs singing in the building and on the steps outside it was brilliant
A great place to visit, although you'll need to be quick before it closes to the public. A beautiful building with such a great history.
Beautiful and historic church. Great place for small concerts etc.
One of the most stunning churches and its incredible for live music
Beautiful church - pity it is now closed. It's so sad for Paisley it is gone.
