What Is An Alpine Tent?November 30, 2022
Yes, tents are a good option for churches. A church is one of a few places where more than a few people congregate at a time and on a regular basis. When people are coming together in fellowship, and they’re doing so in larger and larger numbers, a fixed space isn’t always able to accommodate a lively, growing congregation. Let’s look at five reasons tents are great for churches, three popular church tents in South Africa, and how to get a quote on a tent for your church.
5 advantages of using a tent for a church
When comparing church tents to brick-and-mortar churches, there are clear advantages of choosing the former over the latter. We’ve identified the five advantages of using a tent for a church as:
- Portable place of worship
Where brick and mortar churches are fixed in place, church tents are moveable over and over again. They are portable worship solutions to take the message on the road and to the people where they are. Church tents can easily be packed up, loaded into the back of a bakkie or transport truck, and taken wherever it is needed or required.
- Setup anywhere there is space
Another huge advantage of a church tent? It can be erected wherever there is space, like in public parks or on school sports fields. You can even take your church tent into the middle of nowhere. As long as there is open space enough to peg your church tent to the ground, you can establish a church there..
- Instantly adds extra space
Congregations grow and shrink as the years go by, and if a church congregation swells larger than the available seats in the pews, there is no choice but for congregants to be turned away or asked to stand in the foyer. Church tents instantly add extra space to any brick-and-mortar church.
- Cooler during hotter months
There’s no debating which type of church is cooler in the summer months. If we take the advantage of air conditioning out of the equation, church tents are much cooler options than brick buildings. Plus, with church tents that double as marquees, one can completely open up the sides and keep the cool air flowing through.
- More affordable than a building
There are many costs involved when establishing a permanent church, including buying a plot of land, hiring an architect, and submitting plans to the municipality for approval. When choosing a church tent, most of these expenses are removed and the process of establishing a new church is much easier and cheaper.
