Acoustics in churches design is concerned with the impact of sound on both the worshippers and the building as well. The aim of this study is to investigate sound audibility and quality with the use of acoustic materials and most appropriate architectural form. Qualitative and case study approach were adopted, the qualitative method involves the collection of narrative data in a natural setting, with a view to gaining insight. While the case study involved an intensive study of specific phenomena through investigations. These methods were chosen due to the nature of this research, personal observation and interviews were extensively carried out. Research shows that, architectural forms are special vaccines necessary to achieve quality of sound in churches and large halls in general
