Tech Corner 11 ~ Seating

Tech 1This tech corner, is a guide to church seating, and an encouragement to the congregation to get the most out of choosing where you sit in the building.  We have published this before, but the subject has come up recently, so we are posting it again.

Where should I sit?

In the concert world there is a perception that a good sound system should give a uniform sound dispersion pattern; giving the same experience to every ticket holder; every seat the same.

In the sanctuary, the same perceptions do not hold true. Firstly, the service isn’t a performance, it’s an individual taking part in a corporate activity, but having an individual experience with God. Secondly, we are aware of the variations and rather than spending vast amounts of money trying to fix them, we would encourage you to choose where you sit accordingly.

Loudness: the volume is greatest in the middle of the church and quieter on the front two rows and at the back under the balcony.

Stereo: We mix the sound in stereo, so the best quality of sound is going to be in the middle of the sanctuary.

Deaf loop:  We operate an induction loop for people with hearing aids.  The cabling for this is under the floor about 5 feet out from the wall, so the best signal is in the four seats closest to the wall all around the outside of the sanctuary.

Video screens: A number of years ago, we moved from a big screen and expensive projector to brighter video screens.  They are smaller, but give a much brighter and higher resolution picture, so you should not have difficulty seeing the content.  Unfortunately, we cannot always control what a visiting preacher will turn up with on the Sunday morning.  We issue guidelines, but they are not always followed.   If this is a regular problem, we would encourage you to move to seating further forward in the sanctuary.Tech 2

In a rapidly growing congregation we are always going to have people with different tastes. We would encourage you to get the most out of each service by sitting  in a seat gives you the best acoustic experience.

GLIA Gas Bottle Refill Project

During the winter months the temperature in Dorohoi, Romania can average -25°C.  This make life very difficult for those what have little or no income – many of whom struggle to meet most of their living costs.

The Centre of Hope
The Centre of Hope

Many of those that come to the GLIA centre cannot afford to pay for their gas bottles to be refilled or for wood for their Soba’s (stoves) which means that they are unable to cook or keep warm.  We provide gas refills for as many as we can, especially during the winter and we are able to provide wood for some of those that do not have gas bottles

You will see that there is a small blue (imitation) gas bottle by the church welcome desk.  If you would like to contribute to the cost of providing refills or wood there is a slot in the top, all contributions in the gas bottle will be used for gas or wood.

If you are not able to get to our little gas bottle, click on the link above to learn more about GLIA’s Centre for Hope.

What should I expect at the service?

The services are contemporary, led by our worship band and last about 60-75mins.   They are quite loud, but not painfully so!  The first half is a mixture of singing and prayer, followed by the preacher for the day exploring a passage from scripture.

The first service is the quietist, more reflective, with the 11am and 6pm being louder and more contemporary.  Our worship is lead by one of our worship bands which usually consists of guitars, keys, vocals drums, bass and flute {or any mixture of the above}.  There is invariably tea and coffee between the services with the only exception being when there is communion on.

New Family…?

We pride ourselves on being family friendly and especially at the 11am service there are dozens of kids of all ages – a great place to make new friends if you’re that age.
