Mackintosh's only executed ecclesiastical building was completed in September 1899 at a cost of around £8,000. It sits at the junction of two main roads in the Maryhill district of Glasgow. The exterior presents a variant of the Gothic Mackintosh had studied on his sketching tours to England. The tower derives from All Saints Church, Merriott.
