    Methodist Church Methodist Church Presentation Transcript

    • Vanessa & Holly
      • Methodist church’s are usually rectangular with a large raised pulpit at the front. 
      • This overshadows everything except the organ which is usually behind the pulpit. 
      • Methodism is said to have been 'born in song', hence the importance on the organ to lead the worshippers in singing and the choir which has a prominent position in front of the organ.   
      • The communion table is usually very small with perhaps a cross, Bible and font on it.
      • Pulpit
      • A pulpit is a small elevated platform where a member of the clergy stands in order to read the Gospel lesson and deliver a sermon.
      • Organ
      • The organ is a keyboard instrument of one or more divisions, each played with its own a keyboard played either with the hands or with the feet.
      • The organ is one of the oldest musical instruments in the Western musical tradition.
      • By around the eighth century it had overcome early associations with gladitorial combat and assumed a prominent place in the liturgy of the western church; more recently it has remerged as a secular and recital instrument.
      • Communion Table
      • The table in Christian churches where communion is given.
      • It sits in the middle of the church and the vicar/priest stands there while he gives the service to the public in the church.
      • The communion table sits in the church and the vicar/priest will lay the food bread on it. Also he will have the lighted candles on the table.
      • Pews
      • A pew is a long bench used for seating members of a church's congregation.
      • Pews are generally made of wood and arranged in rows facing the altar in a church.
      • This area where the congregation sits is called the nave.
      • Usually a pathway is left between pews in the centre of the sanctuary to allow for a procession; some have bench like cushioned seating.
      • Many pews have slots behind each pew; these may hold Bibles and hymnals as well as other church literature.
      • Sometimes the church may also provide stations on certain rows that allow the hearing impaired to use headsets in order to hear the sermon.
      • In many churches pews are permanently attached to the floor.
      • Bell Tower
      • A tower containing one or more bells, typically part of a church, is a bell tower; attached to a city hall or other civic building, it is usually named belfry; the occasional free standing one may be referred to by its Italian name, campanile.
      • Such towers are now rarely constructed but are kept primarily for their historic value.
      • Font
      • A baptismal font is an article of church furniture or a fixture used for the baptism of children and adults.
      • The fonts of many Christian denominations are intended for baptisms using a non-immersion method, such as aspersion or affusion.
      • Graveyard
      • Where the corpse’s are buried, if they are to the Christian Faith.
      • Can be visited by family and friends of the loss.
      • A remembered soul of the dead.
