Church seating options can be fixed or flexible and include pews, chairs or theater style seating. Pews and theater seats are common in permanent church buildings while stackable chairs are used in multi-purpose spaces for worship and other events.
Padded theater seats are ideal for large modern church auditoriums with the audio-visual capabilities of performing arts centers. For church buildings where the congregants move around, such as queuing up to the altar, pews provide a more organized traffic flow. Portable and stackable chairs are easy to transport to temporary worship spaces while pews are designed for flat floors where they are permanently installed.
Chairs offer flexible layout options including circular or odd shaped arrangements for smaller gatherings or divided sections for larger meetings. This seating option provides possibilities for countless configurations with individual chairs distributed to smaller group discussions. Chairs can be stacked in storage saving space when not in use.
