Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return
Turn away from sin and be faithful to Christ

Side Chapel - Holy Trinity and St Barnabas, Paisley

The first of a series for Lent 2011. For Ash Wednesday evening service, with imposition of ashes, I attended Holy Trinity and St Barnabas church in Paisley. Located close to Gilmour Street railway station, the church is in the middle of the one way system to the north of the station.

Paisley used to have two Scottish Episcopal Church congregations. St Barnabas to the west of the town and Holy Trinity to the north of the town centre. In 1986 the charges were put under the care of one priest. In 2003 is was decided to merge both congregation on one site. St Barnabas had its final service on Palm Sunday 2004, with the first service in the Holy Trinity building now dedicated to Holy Trinity and St Barnabas was the Easter Vigil at the end of Holy Week 2004.

The picture here is of the side chapel to the north of the nave, which is where the tabernacle is located.
