The sign refers to the public place in which Christians conduct worship. It also refers to the organisations which we call “churches” — e.g, the Anglican church, the Uniting church. In English the word can also refer to the people who make up to the organisation. In this context, the sign above is not enough. Adding the sign for “community” adds the necessary meaning, so the signer signs “church community”.
