This KS3 RE quiz takes a look at places of worship in Christiantiy. A number of religions have specific buildings devoted to worship. You might know how to recognise the features and symbols used in a mosque, a synagogue or a Hindu temple. Christian churches are designed both to be practical places where people may worship and buildings which express meaning through architecture.
Christianity is divided into many denominations, each with its own style and place of worship.
While churches in the UK were traditionally built to be cruciform, which means in the shape of a cross, churches built in more recent centuries have tended to resemble houses in shape, although being somewhat larger! Churches often have towers, or steeples, or steeples built atop towers and many cathedrals have domes. But what about the church "furniture"? Can you recognise an altar, pulpit, lectern or font? Where do baptisms take place? Or weddings? Where might you find a Bible?
