High Ceiling Church LED Lighting Solution

LED lighting churches high ceilings

Anyone familiar with sanctuary lighting at a church is aware of the variables that can make it a tough application. Accessing the lighting high above is not only difficult but a tenuous situation for maintenance personnel. Gigantic lifts need to be hauled in and many times even the pews need to be moved. This takes time and in turn more money. On top of that, lighting maintenance at churches is often done by volunteers who may be limited in availability and/or skill.

This is where commercial grade light bulbs with a long-life span provide extra value. The type of maintenance mentioned above is costly and dangerous, so when a church does have to replace that lighting it makes sense to put up long-lasting bulbs to ensure the process isn’t a yearly event. Lighting that close to the ceiling also requires high lumen capability for the necessary foot candles below. Dimming functionality is also a pretty standard need in this scenario. All of this adds up to an expensive light bulb for the job.

Having worked with hundreds of churches around the country, we have been able to construct lighting solutions that alleviate many of the common issues churches face with their lighting. These aren’t simple straight forward retrofits but rather custom LED solutions specifically designed for high ceiling church applications.

Specifically we have LED replacements for:

300 Watt PAR56 plug in lamp

300 Watt PAR56

500 Watt PAR64

500 Watt PAR64

250W JD250MC

250 Watt E11 Base JD250MC (mini candelabra)

JD250DC 250W




JD500MC 500W

500 Watt E11 Base JD500MC (mini candelabra)


LED replacements for the high-wattage light bulbs above are impossible to find on the market as a standalone, hence our need for custom-designed LED replacement solutions.

Want to learn more about how our custom-LED solutions can work for your high ceiling application? Read more about our custom LED church lighting in action. If you have some of these inefficient high-ceiling application lamps and are ready to retrofit to LED today, fill out this questionnaire and we will get back to you with an LED solution custom-tailored for your facility.

    Do you have an LED replacement bulb for the existing 300 watt PAR 56 bulb, with the two prong plug? The 300 watt incandescent distributes 3840 lumens. Do you have an LED equivalent?

      Hi E.K.,

      That is a very common bulb that we have been retrofitting to LED. So we do have a replacement, but if you could fill out this quick questionnaire about your application (like what color temp you need, beam angle, if dimming is needed, etc) it would help us find the best LED replacement solution for you.

    We have high recessed lighting in our church sanctuary. In 29 fixtures, we are using a GE Quartzline Q400MC 400w/120v bulb. That is a Tungsten-Halogen lamp. Are there any LED replacements for that? We are trying to look into options to lower our energy costs. Thanks.

    I tried to get an idea of what you could do for our church a couple of years and got a generic response I would expect from a used car lotote than a reply. We have 11 out and 9 lit at this time 300 par 56 and 250/500 DC I think. I need to get an idea very quickly to present to our members.
