Important Announcement

It’s with great regret that we have to tell you all this.

The Church Sofa is no more.

It’s been a hard few months and we’ve been trying to keep it going but unfortunately we are now unable to work together on this project. Some of you who know us personally might have heard us arguing more and more lately about whether we should have chairs or pews, in fact the other Andy even mentioned rebranding as the church pew. You’ll be able to keep up with us individually on twitter/facebook etc. but as we said The Church Sofa has had it’s cushions removed and is no longer workable.

It’s been a great couple of years and we will miss the sofa dearly and we’re eternally grateful to all the people who we’ve met along the way.


Team Sofa.

Now, looking at the email address that this was intended for; I’m a little unsure of replying directly. But Carl, if you’re reading this – we dont actually sell Church Pews. Yes we’ve done some research into them before, but (apart from the one time we helped someone out on ebay) we’ve never sold them.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Conduct Your Own Church Pews v Seats Research

Imagine it. Its early Sunday afternoon, and you get back home from church. You sit down and think to yourself that you’re missing something.

Is it the feel of warm fellowship with other Christians? No.

Is the musical complexities of the worship band? No.

Maybe its your pew that your missing?

Or maybe your just wanting to help us out with our Church Pew or Seat Research?

Either way, with thanks to eBay, now is your chance to buy your very own Church Pew – Available for pick up in the Exeter / Devon Area!

(For what its worth, we also have a dust extractor, and a window for sale)


We now end the cheap plug…

The Church Chair v Church Pew Debate. Reports from the field.

We’ve heard reports that our research in the area of Church Pewsor Church Chairs have started to have an affect on the outside world, with our reports possibly being quoted in church meetings.

In order for us to gather evidence to help justify our request for a grant to continue our research, please let us know if you find our research useful.

We want this research to be a blessing to the church, church goers and those that may find themselves in a church by accident (like me…..I mean people I know). This research is in no way aimed for the benefit of the lads of the church sofa, though we may at some point push the ideas of sofas in church.

Church Pews v Seats Research

It has come to our attention recently that our site has become a bedrock of knowledge in the research field of “Church Pews or Seats”.

Whilst we hope to continue our work in this field, we do need a grant to help us investigate further. An example of where our research could go, is a close examination of churches, and how people sit.

So we can possibly link up and develop our work further, please let us know if you know of other centres of this research.

If you would like to support us please get in touch.
