Inflatable church

Posted in Junk for Jehovah


Hot air and churches have a long, interwoven history, but it took Mike Gill from Southampton finally to bring them together. The world’s first inflatable church, which cost a cool £15,000 to make, is 47ft high from ground to steeple and includes a blow-up organ, altar, pulpit, pews, candles and “stained glass” windows.

Inflate your chapel! Pump up your preacher! Swell your congregation! Click here!

Thanks be unto Simon Grimes of Australia for alerting us to Inflatable Church.
