Fellowship of Isis High Altar

Above is a past photo of High Altar: "Facing the two pillars is the high altar upon which stands a carved elm figure of Isis, carved by David aged 15. It is flanked by 4 candle sticks with a little lamp in front and an African figure on each side. It is within a baldequin, the former brass tabernacle cover from Bunclody Church. The altar-table came originally from the old chapel. Flowers,... either artificial, or natural, often given as gifts, are placed on either side of the altar."

See recent photos and hear Olivia Robertson speak of changes made to the High Altar this past January:
