'Building Understanding' Inviting visitors to engage with our faith through church furnishings and festivals


This is a pack of explanatory notices, designed to help weekday visitors see your church not merely as an interesting historical building but as the home of a worshipping community of Christians.

They have been written so that, as visitors read them, they feel as if real-life members of your church are showing them around, helping them to understand why the contents of the building hold such deep meaning and also to imagine them in use during worship.

Brief explanations are offered about significant pieces of furniture, other features of church buildings, and certain times and seasons of the Christian year. The explanations are not intended to be theologically exhaustive but rather to make a few simple, thought-provoking pointers.

A photo of the feature in question appears on each notice but you are invited to replace these with photos of your own by going to www.DofN.org/furniture and downloading the templates.

Please note that this listing is for the pack AS PICTURED and cannot have your own photos put in it.
