Laodicea - Canon 28

It is not permitted to hold love feasts, as they are called, in the Lord’s Houses, or Churches, nor to eat and to spread couches in the house of God.

As mentioned for Canon 27, something had gone awry in the Love Feast, so that measures had to be taken to move it out of the church building.  Couches were used during meals, but in an effort to remove all possible unseemly furnishings, they were removed to allow the building and congregants a spiritual and dignified look.
