Pews vs. chairs for church seating

For years church seating was like God’s word: unchanging. If you walked into any Christian church in the world, you’d expect to see wooden pews or simple wooden chairs. But as time passed and technology caught up, the options for comfortable church seating expanded: Out of that McPhail Church Services was formed, drawing on the expertise of our owner Norman McPhail, who worked in pew manufacturing for years before founding McPhail Church Services. McPhail performs on site pew restoration, pew upholstery and restoration. So when customers say they’re considering new church seating, and should they install new pews or chairs, we give them a cost-saving third alternative:  Let McPhail repair and restore or reupholster the pews you have, preserving your history while saving you and impressive amount of money!
