Church chairs for Christmas

4 September 2011  |  Admin

As commercial furniture suppliers, Kirkhouse has supplied over 750 churches throughout the UK - we have over thirty years experience in church seating and have developed a number of our own chairs for the Church market (including Malvern stacking chair and Dual pew stacking chair). Here we consider the logical church chair order process we have established, and detail how churches can achieve the best results against time and budget constraints.

Evaluate your Church Chair delivery schedule

Quality made to order church chairs are generally between 4-6 weeks in manufacture. During busy periods (Christmas and Easter in particular) church customers might work to a six week delivery schedule. We suggest church customers contact Kirkhouse to check the current delivery schedule of their preferred church chairs.

It is most important that Church customers order as soon as they are happy with their decision: If a Church knows what is required eight weeks before delivery can be made, then the Church should place its order and ask for delivery in eight weeks - we don't want to let Churches down and advanced production schedules for our Church seating factories helps all our church furniture customers.

Choosing the best Kirkhouse Chair for your Church

We regularly supply Churches throughout the UK, broadly speaking, UK churches may be split into three categories:

  1. Church Worship only. Churches that require chairs for worship only, may focus on Kirkhouse sanctuary chairs. This excellent range of timber frame church chairs is ideally suited for extended seating in comfort. Our sanctuary chairs are generously proportioned: They typically have wide & deep seats and well shaped full backrests. Kirkhouse sanctuary chairs are bulky and do not stack very high; as such they do not make the best Hall or Multi-use seating.
  2. Church Hall. Kirkhouse steel frame stacking chairs are most popular for use in Church Halls. Steel frame stacking chairs are extremely strong and are available with numerous options: Customers can specify various options making the chairs better suited to a wide range of uses.
  3. Worship & Hall / Multi-use. Many Churches now use their worship space in many ways, with seating being reconfigured for individual services, or even cleared away entirely for indoor sporting events or community education. Such use implies a number of requirements in the furniture, and customers should be more considerate as to chairs which will perform in the desired fashion. Customers might consider chairs from our Steel Stacking Chair range, Curvy chairs are of exceptional quality, whilst low cost solutions include upholstered plastic chairs such as our Advanced-SBP.

Upholstery is often an important aspect in Church seating. Churches considering upholstered chairs need not worry about the colours available - Kirkhouse have a vast range of upholstery options - we can offer expert advice whichever chair you are considering.

We suggest customers not become to entangled in upholstery colour - choose your church chair first; the upholstery is the easy bit!
