The Worship Experience

Creating a House of Prayer

Like many communities, churches are grappling with how best to address members once it’s safe to return for services. It’s been reported that only 40 percent of Americans who belong to a religious tradition are comfortable with the idea of attending in person. So what is the best path forward?

Begin by giving your members the assurance that the right safety protocols are in place. Seating plays a key role in this. In addition to being durable, comfortable, and quiet in use, seating needs to be easy to clean and allow for social distancing. With safety on everyone’s minds these days, Irwin offers guidance on proper cleaning and maintenance procedures that can help put your church family at ease.
