Tips for Updating Your Church

When it comes time to update your church, it can be difficult to decide where to focus your budget. Most churches choose to either focus on function or comfort when updating their church. Let's take a look at both.

Updating Your Church for Optimal Comfort

If you want your congregation to spend more time at church, pay attention to sermons better, and have fewer interruptions during church, investing in comfort can help you achieve all these goals. To increase the comfort level of your church, consider investing in:

  • church pew cushions
  • informal seating such as couches, upholstered chairs, and accent tables
  • updated heating or air conditioning
  • energy rated windows
  • video screens in large sanctuaries for better viewing
  • bathroom amenities like hand lotion, large stalls, and an audio freed from the service in progress so nothing is missed while taking children for a diaper change or making a quick visit to the bathroom
  • comfortable breastfeeding space for mothers
  • special parking spaces for families with children with special needs, and expecting or new mothers
  • special assistance equipment and consideration for handicapped and elderly visitors like valet parking or assistance with doors
  • changing tables in men's rooms for fathers
  • meeting rooms with whiteboards, audio visual equipment, and comfortable seating
  • adjustable lighting for prayer services and solemn occasions

While investing in any area of your church is always a wise stewardship of funds, choosing which areas to focus on requires evaluating the needs and values of the current congregation along with the needs of the community and future church members. It's important to also consider the priorities of your community as your future church leaders and church growth will come from this group of people.
