Church Project

On a Sunday night you'll find me at St. Philip's Prebyterian Church (aka. St. Phils, or Surfside.) The church is in the process of moving to a new location. As part of the move I offered to make some new furniture. At this stage it looks to be up to three pieces, a lectern for preaching, a companion piece (to hold lap top, tissues, water, notes), and a small communion table.

The lectern is essentially a tilted table to hold an open A4 folder (~30cm x 45cm) at an appropriate hight for the preacher to read. Other bonuses include a microphone socket, a light, electrical connections for lap top etc, storage for water and books. Suggestions from the pastor includes 'keep it simple', 'adjustable height', and 'rustic and natural edge'.

At this stage the most likely design is a simple single column adjustable height lectern with a single XLR cable within the column for a gooseneck microphone on the table.
