How To Arrange Seats In Church

Normally when this blog discusses Church seating arrangements, it is in the context of arguing between the use of chairs or Church pews.

Today, I’d like to present the above diagram, showing how seats can be arranged in Church.

As you can see, the seats are presented in a semicircle, giving the speaker a fantastic chance to engage with as many people as possible.

It also means that preschoolers can wave and shout hello at each other during the service.

How do you arrange you seats in church, and why is that a silly move?

(Yes the above diagram was indeed written on the back of a Church Notice Sheet, during a church service.

Can you spot the moment when I felt I should stand up during worship?)
