ABBEY CHURCH PEWS Conducting services, it has been clear to me for some time how short of space we are in front of the chancel gates. Following discussions with the Fabric Committee and the PCC, we have decided to create some space to allow for greater flexibility. The 2 front “Montagu pews” are to be shortened and have been temporarily removed to facilitate this. I am considering moving the brass lectern to the east side and the lectern/reading desk to beside my stall. At present as we ‘live’ with this experimental arrangement, I am re-siting the grand piano, providing more space on the west side. It is early days, and I am conscious that folk have firm views on church furniture - just as we do in our homes - and this is particularly so with pews. In the interim, I would value any comments you might have. FJ
