The Christian service of communion is about to be shared by the parish minister and his congregation. The elements of the sacred meal, bread and wine are on the altar in front of him covered by white napkins. The church silver,goblets, jug and plate are all on display.The minister is surrounded on three sides by the elders of the church. Two rows of people sit at right angles to the altar and on opposite sides.They may be choir members . There are chairs instead of pews for the rest of the congregation.with no one sitting in the front rows on the left. Many of the women are wearing hats.Everyone looks serious and thoughtful, befitting the occasion.The wall behind the minister is wood panelled.
