The Altar

History of St Michael's -
    The Furnishings II

Also from St Michael le Strand came the communion plate, communion table, desk prayer book, altar service book, oak sanctuary chair, sanctuary stools, oak reading desk, sanctuary curtain and carpet, altar vases, collection plates and boxes and churchwardens staves and numerous other gifts. Some of these are still in use and some have been sold over the years.

We should also be grateful that our predecessors decided that they did not want some things. Apparently the painted pine choir stalls disfigured the chancel, according to the Parish Magazine in April 1911, and so were replaced by the oak ones shown above. (There was still some money left over from the sale of St Michael le Strand). The organ was also to have been transferred, but this proved impractical.
