Church Vestments

church vestments Brighton

Hayes & Finch Vestments sells hand-made chasubles and other vestments. They're available in various fabrics, styles, and designs to cater to every member of the clergy seeking high-quality vestments without the hefty price tag.

Many clergy prefer the finest quality chasubles or everyday religious clothing. You need to look your best when you're officiating at a High Mass, giving Holy Communion to a sick person, or marrying someone.

A simple, plain chasuble won't suffice. You must stand before your congregation in the most dignified and impressive vestments that your parish can afford.

The same applies when engaging with your congregation and being seen in your parish. Wearing your best clergy shirt or religious clothing is still a priority for quality and value for money.

For repairs and restoration of your church vestments, Hayes & Finch can customise them for you. Our expert tailors can repair or replace any embroidery, lining, or other vestment parts.

FAQ’s - Church Supplies Brighton

What are church candles called?

Church candles are known by several names depending on their specific purpose and use within the church. The most common types include:

  1. Altar Candles: These are typically tall and slender, placed directly on the altar. They represent the light of Christ and are usually lit during all church services.
  2. Paschal Candles: This is a large, decorated candle used during the Easter season and at baptisms and funerals. It symbolizes the light of Christ rising from the darkness of sin.
  3. Sanctuary Lamps or Sanctuary Candles: These are candles that burn near the tabernacle, indicating the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. They are usually kept lit at all times.
  4. Votive Candles: These are smaller candles that worshippers light for private prayer intentions. They're often found near statues or shrines within the church.
  5. Advent Candles: These are part of the Advent wreath, lit in anticipation of Christmas during the Advent season. There are usually four of them, each representing a different aspect of the spiritual preparation for Christmas.
  6. Processional Candles: These are carried in religious processions, such as the entrance and exit of the Mass.

Each of these candles has a unique name and role within the church, contributing to the rich tapestry of Christian worship.

What do the colours of vestments mean?

The colours of church vestments aren't arbitrary; they have significant meaning and correspond to different liturgical seasons and specific celebrations within the Christian calendar. Here's a brief overview:

  1. White: Symbolising purity, joy, and glory, white is used during the liturgical seasons of Christmas and Easter, as well as for celebrations like weddings and baptisms. It's also used to commemorate saints who aren't martyrs.
  2. Red: Representing the fire of the Holy Spirit and the blood of martyrs, red is worn on Pentecost, celebrations of the Lord's Passion, and feasts of martyred saints.
  3. Green: The colour of hope and growth, green is worn during Ordinary Time—the periods between the major liturgical seasons.
  4. Purple (or Violet): Symbolizing penance and preparation, purple is used during Advent and Lent.
  5. Black: Representing mourning, black may be worn for Masses of Christian Burial and on All Souls' Day.
  6. Rose: This colour is used only twice a year, on the third Sunday of Advent (Gaudete Sunday) and the fourth Sunday of Lent (Laetare Sunday), symbolising joy in the midst of these penitential seasons.

Each colour serves as a visual cue, reminding worshippers of the particular theological theme or holy person being commemorated.

What is church furniture called?

Church furniture refers to the various pieces of furniture found in a church. Each piece has a specific name and serves a particular function. Here are some examples:

  1. Altar: The central table in the church where the Eucharist is celebrated.
  2. Pulpit: A raised stand where the Scriptures are read and the sermon is delivered.
  3. Lectern: A stand from which non-Gospel readings are read.
  4. Ambo: A lectern specifically made for the proclamation of the Gospel.
  5. Pew: Long bench-style seating for the congregation.
  6. Kneeler: A padded board in front of the pew for kneeling during prayer.
  7. Chancel: The area around the altar, usually raised, including places for the choir and clergy.
  8. Tabernacle: The ornate container in which the consecrated Eucharist is stored for use in later services or for distribution to the sick and homebound.
  9. Credence Table: A small table where the bread and wine are placed before being brought to the altar during the Eucharist.
  10. Baptismal Font: The basin or pool where baptisms are performed.
  11. Confessional: The small room or booth where the sacrament of confession is administered.
  12. Sacristy: A room where the clergy prepare for a service, and where vestments and other church furnishings are kept.

Each piece of church furniture has a specific role in the liturgy and the architectural layout of a church, contributing to the overall flow and function of worship.

These items play an important role in the physical aspect of worship, guiding the congregation through the symbolic actions that form the heart of Christian liturgical practise.
