Parkway’s Sanctuary is a modern, 4,100 square foot, worship area with beautiful stained-glass windows. The Sanctuary was designed so that the large (490 Square), elevated, chancel is visible throughout the space. The pews have been specifically arranged to allow a spacious center aisle and still allow movement along the outside edges of the Sanctuary. Also, to allow flexibility in seating, only the last two rows of pews are fixed.
The acoustics in the sanctuary are superb and the music is enhanced by a 2 manual, 23 rank Quimby pipe organ and aBostongrand piano. One striking feature of the sanctuary are the unique wooden trusses that form the ceiling.
Maximum seating – 300 (240 can set very comfortably without feeling crowded.) If additional seating is needed, folding chairs can be set up in the Gathering Space adjacent to the sanctuary. Activity within the Sanctuary can be viewed from the Gathering Space and sound is “piped” in to the room.
