Are kneelers just for Catholics?

I think the only time I see a kneeler is in a Catholic Church. Any other denomination have them?

  • You mean those little benches on the back of the pews? If that's what you mean, I went to a Presbyterian church once for a piano recital that had those. But as far as getting on your knees at the altar, I think every Christian church believes in kneeling to pray at the altar.

  • I have seen them in Assembly of God and Pentecostal churches as well. I grew up in a Presbyterian church, and we never had any in ours.
