Church Seating Options

Our radius curved pews can utilize more of your available worship space, creating an intimate atmosphere for sermons and special events.
Preserve the traditional look and feel of your church with straight pew styles. Standard and custom options are available.
From providing your main seating in the sanctuary to overflow seating or even choir seating, our stackable chairs offer flexible versatility.
No matter what your needs, we can design and build church benches and pews that you’ll be proud to use for generations to come.
Popular in modern synagogues, theatre-style combination seating is also a fantastic option in contemporary church spaces.

Calculating Your Church Seating
As you begin a renovation process on your existing worship space, you may think you know your seating capacity—especially if you plan to replace straight pew benches with new or creatively repurposed straight pews.
Of course, your capacity number can be complicated by architectural elements in your seating areas, such as columns or posts, and also by the type of church seating you want to use. Radius curved pews, for instance, may allow you to physically fit more individual worshipers within a space, simply based on the shape of the pew body versus straight benches. And, because we handcraft our pews without through-seat dividers, you’ll have even more seating capacity thanks to better engineering.
So, how do you calculate your church seating capacity? The best answer is to trust the worship furniture design pros at New Holland Church Furniture. We can help you not just land on an official occupancy number but maximize your worship space for worshipper comfort, church seating flexibility, and more.
Guidelines for COVID-19 Safe Seating
As COVID-19 has raised concerns about how we can safely gather indoors in pandemic scenarios, many churches are finding that they have to establish reserved and assigned seating rules to satisfy social distancing guidelines. Additionally, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures are being established and carried out for church seating.
Are you concerned that you are damaging your valuable wood worship furniture with harsh cleaning chemicals to satisfy more frequent cleanings? New Holland Church Furniture is here to help with advice and tips for protecting your valuable church seating during these challenging times.
