Removal of Pews has become an obsession of many Churches in the UK. One of the first things that any new minister to a congregation wants to do is to remove what they call “old fashioned” pews. I have been privileged to visit some Churches in the East. They still have the pews but the Churches are bursting to their seams. So do the removal of pews really going to bring in the heathen by the hundreds? I think not! Only the word of God has such power.
