Until service began, the doors leading outside were kept open, so on colder mornings, this made it even worse
My and I have moved to a new location recently for our church services. There were plenty of pros and cons. This route is a shorter drive, which meant all of us didn’t have to leave as early to get there. But I missed being at a location that required very little set up and take down before and after service. The new location was at a private school and I was not actually a fan of much that was here. It was not the cleanest and it even had a smell to it. It also took a couple of hours before and after to set up and wash up, which could be exhausting. The thing I disliked the most was how freezing it always was inside the auditorium. No matter the temperature outside, I felt like I always had to dress in layers. It was not this way when we first moved our location. However, now it was constantly cold and all the people would keep their coats on for the entire service. I used to see someone messing with the control unit to try and adjust the temperature every week, now I wondered if that was being done. Until service began, the doors leading outside were kept open, so on colder mornings, this made it even worse. Not only was this location not that comfortable in general, the lack of heat that was ever inside made it even worse. I decided to bring it up to some other members and see if they felt the same way and they did! Well after many discussions and the fact that our church group was quite small, it became our responsibility each month to adjust the temperature when I arrived. This was a substantial help and each week, it was just a bit more comfortable.
