The older, smaller church had been transformed into the church hall. The resourceful church members kept all the old trappings in the apse of the church hall, because I guess you just never know when a spare communion chalice will come in handy. And, to be on the safe side, all the accoutrements are locked behind a gate. Fortunately for itinerate photographers, the gate’s grate is large enough to accommodate a camera lens.
