WELCOME TO THE web site of the parish of Holy Trinity and All Saints, Coatdyke. Our community is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Motherwell in the West of Scotland. Our parish opened in 1902 in a site in Rochsolloch Road, Coatdyke. In the late 1970’s the parish purchased the present church from the Church of Scotland as the original church was small and in need of massive repairs. Ministering to a community of 1000, the parish also provides a chaplaincy service to Alexandra Primary School and Saint Patrick’s High School. Click here for directions to our parish.
Coatdyke is located between the industrial towns of Coatbridge and Airdrie. In the mid 1800’s, Coatbridge was known as “The Iron Burgh” due to the density of steel and iron works. Over the years however, heavy industry has declined and the area is now dependent on light industries and the service sector for employment. In the mid 1800’s, Airdrie earned its living from the coal industry and moving into the 19th century it grew on the back of Coatbridge’s iron and steel industries. Today, Airdrie and Coatbridge are much entwined, each having a similar industrial and employment make-up.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our parish web site and that you become a regular visitor.
