Welcome to Mackintosh Queen's Cross

Mackintosh Queen's Cross is one of Glasgow's hidden architectural gems. The only church in the world designed by the great Scottish architect, designer and artist, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Commissioned in 1896 by the Free Church, the simplicity of the design is inspiring. The windows are Gothic in character, yet are infused with the Mackintosh spirit, and the floral motifs he affected can be easily recognised, particularly on the tracery of the large western window above the chancel.

Mackintosh Queen's Cross now houses a plethora of events for the CRM Society and has provided Glasgow with a new venue for weddings, concerts, meetings and seminars. The CRM Society continues to deliver lively learning experiences, workshops and activities for schools, students, adults, families and children. This year the Society launched a new volunteer programme offering new recruits a range of opportunities to get involved in supporting the organisation.


The Glasgow School of Art – Mackintosh Building update

On the 14 November 2016 six steel girders, weighing a quarter of a tonne each, were lifted by crane into the top floor Mackintosh Building, through an opening in the temporary roof. The girders were custom made to match the profile of the originals and to fit into the existing pockets within the Mackintosh Building. 

Mackintosh Restoration Project Manager Sarah MacKinnon said "It is a very important and exciting moment for us. It marks the beginning of the reconstruction of the Mackintosh Building. Up until now, we've spent a lot of time stripping fire damaged fabric out of the building and this is the first major piece of construction going into the building."
