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 terrible fire in the Mackintosh Building at the GSA last was such a shock and heartbreak for the world of Mackintosh and the creative community in Glasgow. Our heart goes out to all the staff and students at the GSA who have been affected by this tragedy.
The Mackintosh legacy is small, vulnerable and irreplaceable, and the fire has prompted an outpouring of concern and support from around the world.
The Mackintosh Society is doing everything possible to help.
Anyone wishing to offer any kind of support or assistance can do so via the GSA Website.
