St Michael and All Angels' Church

Door open days

Argyll & Bute

St. Michael and All Angels' Church was designed by Sir Rowan Anderson, a pupil of Sir Gilbert Scott, and dedicated in 1868, its dedication recalling the ruined medieval chapel at Faslane also dedicated to St. Michael.��� It replaced an earlier episcopalian church on the same site.

Red sandstone from Comcockle in Dumfriesshire was used for the exterior with limestone from Caen in Normandy for internal construction.�� The church contains many interesting features including one of the finest collections of Victorian stained glass in the west of Scotland.�� It is the only public building in Helensburgh to be listed grade A.
