How to ensure the best acoustics in a church

Noise control solutions that blend into their surroundings

Churches are some of the oldest buildings in the world – in fact, the oldest church at Aqaba in Jordan dates back to AD 293-303. As the eras progressed, so did churches, leading to some of the finest architectural features you will see in your lifetime.

Through the ages, many different places of worship have been created – from the flat ceilings of a monastery to the lofty ceilings of a cathedral. Today, many churches are designed in a theatre style to allow many people to worship, sing and celebrate together. Designing and building a church in this theatre style allows the space to be more versatile and support more uses than just traditional church services.

Many church patrons use audio equipment such as microphones to communicate their message. And since COVID times, many church communities are completing services via video conferences. These changes mean a church’s acoustics need to be perfect to ensure the message’s clarity.

Yet traditionally, acoustics was certainly not the focal point of a church design. This means that with changes in church layout, increased attendance, and modernisation in the way messages are delivered, a lot of churches struggle with excess noise and difficulty hearing within their facilities.

Fortunately, Avenue Interior Systems offer a range of acoustic solutions that blend into their surroundings to avoid detracting from a building’s beauty or confusing interior design and décor.
