The Paisley Daily Express has published today that Thomas Coats Memorial Church is closing and the impression given is that this is immediate. The true facts are that we are looking to the future when the congregation can no longer maintain the building. We hope to pass the grade A listed building, when the time comes, to various bodies who will keep it running as a going concern for all the people who use it presently. This will take considerable time and will not happen soon. The church was built for the people of Paisley and, as such, we hope to keep it as part of Paisley’s heritage.
