What does a Catholic Church look like inside?

If you’re new to the Catholic Church or if it’s been part of your life for many years, this free downloadable poster provides you with an easy-to-understand visual representation of what you’ll find inside. 

It’s also a  great resource for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 RE lessons and for Children’s Liturgy groups.

  • Where do the sacraments take place inside a Catholic Church?
  • What are the different parts of the Church called?
  • Where do we worship in a Church? 

Share this poster in your home, school or parish and go deeper with the key Bible texts we’ve provided that have shaped our worship together.

Using our poster, you can find out where the Tabernacle, Font, Sanctuary Lamp, Incense Burner (and more) are located in our churches, as well as see where these are mentioned in the Bible.

This is a great guide for children and young people to help them understand the Catholic Church. If you’re a KS2 or KS3 teacher who needs to plan a RE lesson, this free resource will provide you with a great visual prompt to explain the Catholic Church to children and young people.
