The Wynd Centre provides a variety of services and facilities to many of Paisley and Renfrewshire's mutual aid and self help groups. Formed in 1984 by St John's Church of Scotland, School Wynd Congregational Church and Orr Square Church of Scotland, and joined later by Paisley High Church of Scotland, The Wynd Centre is one of the main outreach arms of the now united congregation of Oakshaw Trinity Church.
The counselling service provides in the region of three thousand hours of counselling every year. All our counsellors are volunteers that are highly qualified, committed and dedicated to working with those that are most vulnerable.
The Coffee Shop which is staffed principally by volunteers remains an important source of income through which the Centre is able to provide our services. The Coffee Shop is open from 10.00am to 3.30pm, Monday to Saturday and you are always assured of a friendly smile and good food.
The Centre is also the base for a number of organisations including Victim Support, Paisley Child Contact Centre and SSAFA as well as providing a venue to many weekly and monthly meetings of other groups.
Within the Centre you will find various types of lettable accommodation such as the 200 + seat auditorium, halls, and meeting rooms that will suit just about any requirement. We can provide your function/meeting with teas and coffees or of course you can always visit our Coffee Shop during the day. There are vending machines within the main reception area that provide a variety of hot and cold drinks as well as snacks.
