Church & Stage: Producing Theater for Education, Praxis, Outreach and Fundraising

Church and Stage is a guide for people in churches who want to employ theater in ministry, and for theater people who want to create opportunities to work in churches. The points of contact between religion and theater are numerous, and Dean J. Seal offers guidelines for making the connection work no matter what level of experience or financial commitment a congregation brings to the task. The author, who has worked in the worlds of both church and stage, provides background on the historical and theological relationship between religion and theater. He then offers practical advice and guidelines for the use of theater in the context of ministry—from discussion groups to bibliodrama to play-going to ultimately producing a show. This book is a resource for ministers, lay leaders, youth groups, and members of the theater community who desire greater integration of faith and work.

Does your church use pews, chairs, or theater style seats for the service?

Question by David: Does your church use pews, chairs, or theater style seats for the service?
Also if you would i would like to know the type of church and the size of the congregation.

Best answer:

Answer by Melonie
At my church, (we are a Non Denominational Church) we use simple chairs for our service. We seat close to five hundred in Main-Service, and about/close to 100 in the Junior/Senior High services. We use them so we can remove them, since we have a large staging area and also, the church is a main-rec room when not used as a Service-Hold or a large-grouped concert.
