The church's acoustic


The main worship space in Carlops Church is essentially a rectangular box with a wooden floor and plastered walls and ceiling. There are 60 cushioned seats, but sound absorption has been minimised by leaving the floor uncarpeted. As a consequence, the space has a warm, lively acoustic, with a mid-frequency reverberation time of 1.5 seconds when empty.


This provides a comfortable environment for preaching and for lectures, although a modest amount of reinforcement is typically provided by the installed sound system.  The natural acoustic of the space is ideal for chamber music performance and for encouraging congregational singing.
