Default church lighting

I am looking at adding some additional lighting to an existing church. Right now they are lighting the sanctuary with recessed can lighting and LED bulbs. Cathedral ceiling about 30' to the peak?

What is normally installed in a church? And what would go with the existing recessed lighting?

It's a grid ceiling with all 2x2 tiles. They also want to be able to dim the new lights.

We talked about track lighting and they do have a couple installed already.

I think the concern with the track was the aiming of it and it shining in peoples eyes.

I was thinking of some 2x2 LED lay ins but I don't think they make a dimmable version as of now.

well 'LED' is the word these days, but the dimmable aspect does introduce a bit of a hurdle

here's a company that seems up on it all, not sure about the lay-ins
