The Church Pulpit is a raised stand for preachers in a Christian church.The traditional pulpit is raised well above the surrounding floor for audibility and visibility, accessed by steps, with sides coming to about waist height.The religious pulpit is generally reserved for clergy, in some chapels a second pulpit was built opposite the main one for lay exhortations, testimonials and other speeches.
In both Catholic and Protestant churches the pulpit may be located closer to the main congregation in the nave, either on the nave side of the crossing, or at the side of the nave some way down. This is especially the case in large churches, to ensure the preacher can be heard by all the congregation.
