The Wynd Centre is one of the main outreach arms of the now united congregation of Oakshaw Trinity Church. Initially, the Centre provided a counselling service with five counsellors and a coffee shop. Today, and after a £2.7million refurbishment of the former St. John’s Church and halls, the centre has grown to provide a variety of services and facilities to many of Paisley and Renfrewshire’s mutual aid and self-help groups.
The counselling service has expanded with anything between thirty and forty counsellors providing almost nine thousand hours of counselling annually. All our counsellors are volunteers who are highly qualified, committed and dedicated to working with those who are most vulnerable.
The Coffee Shop which is staffed principally by volunteers remains one of our main sources of income through which we are able to provide our services.
The Centre is the base for a number of organisations including PACE, Victim Support, Social Care Association and Paisley Child Contact Centre as well as providing a venue for many weekly and monthly meetings of other groups.
Within the Centre you will find various types of suitable accommodation for let, such as the 230 seat auditorium, halls and meeting rooms that will suit just about any requirement. We can provide your function/meeting with teas and coffees or you can always visit our Coffee Shop during the day. There are vending machines within the main reception area that can provide a variety of hot and cold drinks as well as snacks.
