Unique fan in our church

When our church was rebuilt it got entirely a new look, although it was sad to see the old church disappear. The old church was around 300 years old. The new church is much bigger as that was required to cater to the Catholic population that has increased to a very large extent. I was particularly drawn to that single fan that takes care of the church hall unlike those countless fans that were hanging there. This fan has a sweep wide enough to cover the entire area.

The church looks light and airy, unlike most churches here, We don't need fans in English churches

Why don't you need fans in English churches ? I suppose it's because they are air conditioned .

@SIMPLYD No, it's because they are cold.

We do not have fans or air conditioning in our churches, they are so old with thick walls, they are cold even in summer.

I wonder if you had to build new churches to accommodate more people whether they would still construct them with thick walls.

@allknowing Surely not, I have seen some modern Churches in the outskirts of the big cities. They have normal walls, like the modern houses. Nothing to do with the beautiful churches of the past.

Tropical countries should really have fans on their churches . At the church where we attend Sunday masses , there are fans by the sides .

That we see everywhere. We had those fans earlier but this single fan caters to the entire fan which I found to be unique

@allknowing For it to cater for a lot of church goers , it must be that it can blow so strongly . The hairs would get messy though . The church looks cozy .

It seems a great shame that the church was so old but has disappeared.

The old church could not accommodate the present population.

Too bad there couldn't be a way to preserve the old church yet have the needed space at the same time. 300 years is a long time.

The space was too small in the old church.
