Church Cushions

We offer a service to provide church cushions for pews, kneelers and hassocks, as well as specialist seating including Bishop’s chairs and organ stools. Whether you are part of a large church or only have one or two pews that need cushions, South West Upholstery can help.

Our cushions are all made to size and to order in the fabric of your choice, so whether you’re tying in a certain colour or perhaps are money-conscious, our sales team would love to hear from you. All of the fabrics we offer as suitable for church cushions are hard-wearing, so you can sit comfortably knowing your cushions are built to last.

To encourage even use of the foam, our pew cushions are reversible with fabric on either side – and with a zip on the back edge they can also be removed for easy cleaning. A number of our fabrics are washable, and some also come with stain protection to help guard against tea and coffee spillages!

The choice is yours as to whether you want piping or not – perhaps even choose a contrasting fabric to incorporate your church’s colours or for something a little exciting. We make the piping ourselves so any colour is an option for your pew cushions, hassocks, and kneelers.

Site Visit

We offer a free, no obligation site visit service to attend your location and discuss your requirements. We can also make up templates for those difficult nooks and crannies! A range of fabric and foam samples will be brought as standard so we can discuss your preferences there and then. Please note this service is dependent on location – contact us to find out more.

Unusual Shapes

Perhaps there is an area of your church in which you’d like a softer seat but you’re not sure if a cushion can be made? Here at South West Upholstery we can make cushions to any shape or size, regardless of whether it is curved or tapered or anything else!


Our Sales Team are always happy to help with your material choices and will find something suitable for your congregation. As part of our service we can send free samples for you to deliberate with your board or congregation. Perhaps you want different colours for your pew cushions and kneelers or hassocks? That is no problem at all, simply mention it at point of enquiry to find out your options.


There are a few options when it comes to choosing your foam, however we would always recommend using chip (recon) foam for your pews as it keeps its shape well and keeps the congregation comfortable. We have a range of foam samples that you can try for yourself for your church cushions if you’re not sure. All foam products conform to furniture & furnishings (FIRE) & (SAFETY) regulations 1988 statutory instrument 1324 of 1988.


All foam is wrapped in stockinette; this is a netting that encases the foam to reduce friction between the cover and foam, therefore protecting the foam and cover from excessive wear. It also makes getting the foam in and out of the covers much easier.


We also offer a custom embroidery service, with a selection of colours to choose from to fit your church perfectly. Whether you require an image and/or text, we are happy to help.

Church Chairs

If you have swapped your pews for chairs, or perhaps never had pews, we can provide new cushions for chairs with or without tabs as required. If your church seating upholstery has started wearing thin, we offer an upholstery service and can also replace the foam to save you money and to prevent chairs unnecessarily going to the tip. We’d love to hear from you if you want to find out more. Call or email to speak to one of our friendly Sales Team.

No Minimum Order

We have no requirements for a minimum order, so whether you have one cushion or require all of your church cushions to be replaced, contact us today to find out how we can help.
