The Church was not heated and after a small hall had been built and a presbytery acquired (100 Old Greenock Rd.) it was necessary to undertake substantial renovation and rebuilding work in 1949. The present Presbytery was built on the site of the old hall in 1967. Since then the Church has, on a number of occasions, been remodelled and the interior renovated.
Some of the present furnishings on the sanctuary; the Ambo (from which the Word of God is Proclaimed) and the Presidential Chair, were made by John McLaughlin - a local sculptor in wood - from the old benches of the Church.
With the foundation of St. Mirin's in Paisley in 1808 a Mission to 18 surrounding villages began in a more systematic form. St. Fillan's Parish in Houston was founded in 1841 and the Catholic members of the village community could celebrate Mass by walking to the Church there. In 1883 a Mass station was opened in Bishopton and with the purchase of land in 1915 a Church was built and finally opened on April 10th 1926.
