Different church floor plan designs include standard meeting house style designs, steel church designs, staged designs for expansion, dome-style designs and modular designs. Many religious and building websites offer images and variations on these designs.
Meeting style floor plans center around a large hall with seating and include several smaller rooms at the side or sides of the hall for various activities. These include office spaces, classrooms, kitchens and recreation areas. Dome-style designs are similar to meeting style, with the meeting hall in the center. Its high, vaulted ceiling offers excellent acoustics for sermons and music.
Steel churches have the advantage of versatility and affordability. Staged designs generally start with a single meeting hall and administrative space and expand to other wings as the church grows. Modular churches are also affordable and mobile, for churches that move to follow congregations or seek out specific spaces to settle.
