27 Cheeky Churches

From Twittering Churches to Inflatable Places of Worship

— August 6, 2009 — Art & Design
A church can be used for a multitude of events, and we piled up a bunch of cheeky churches to celebrate the different and bizarre forms we've seen of these sacred sanctuaries.

We've got a wide selection of holy houses, from LEGO churches to inflatable churches and even churches that Tweet (yes, like on Twitter). Say a little prayer and commence!

Implications - Churches, despite their primary intention of being places of worship, are being reinvented in the eyes of designers and consumers everywhere. They are now not taken as seriously as they once were, as designers create offbeat and bizarre versions of churches and cathedrals. Such lightheartedness could indicate a changing attitude towards religion and the power of religion in society.
