Don’t Let a Worn-Out or Inadequately Sized Ambo Affect Your Services

The church ambo plays an integral role in your worship services. In many churches, a beautiful ambo is an essential piece of worship furniture, a place of dignity for the minister of the Word. However, over time, church ambos may become worn out or no longer meet the needs of your growing congregation. Don’t let these challenges hinder the effectiveness and beauty of your services.

When your ambo starts showing signs of wear or fails to accommodate the diverse needs of your clergy, it can negatively impact the atmosphere of reverence and connection during your worship. That’s where we come in. With our expertise in designing and creating custom church ambos, we can help you overcome these challenges and create a space that enhances the spiritual experience of your congregation. Just look at some of the examples of past ambos we helped churches create:

Find the Inspiration You Need to Start Designing Your Church or Catholic Ambo

Designing a church or Catholic ambo requires careful consideration of the unique needs and traditions of your faith community. At New Holland Church Furniture, we believe that your ambo should enhance the functionality of your worship space and embody the sacredness of your traditions.

Whether you seek a traditional design that pays homage to the early churches or a contemporary statement piece that reflects the modernity of your congregation, we have the expertise and creativity to bring your vision to life. Our team will work closely with you, understanding your unique requirements and ensuring that every detail, from the size and shape to the intricate details and finishes, aligns perfectly with your vision.

Pulpit, Lectern, Ambo… What’s the Difference?

There is some disagreement—for both liturgical and simple preferred terminology reasons—about what makes an ambo different from a church pulpit (and different from a church podium or lectern, too). We won’t get into lengthy technical descriptions or a history lesson here, but on a practical level, an ambo in modern church interior design terms will be freestanding. It may be placed on a platform or elevated in some other way. Depending on a given congregation’s traditions, it may also be moveable, like a lectern.

In contrast, church pulpits tend to be physically attached to the church building in some way. Church pulpits are also designed to physically surround the worship leader and elevate them above the congregation, as well. For more examples of a Catholic ambo or church ambos, view our ambo gallery.
