Manchester Consistory Court; Spafford Ch. March 1992
A faculty was sought to replace an existing temporary altar with a new altar of better quality at a cost of some £400. The D. A. C. considered the design to be mediocre and indicated that a functional table with bold frontals would be much better. Whilst accepting the opinion of the D.A.C., the Chancellor concluded that as the congregation liked it, and it was probably the best that the P.C.C. could afford, a compromise solution was appropriate. The P.C.C. were to consider the proposal for a portable table with bold frontals. In the event of this proposal being discussed and expressly rejected, a faculty for the new altar would issue.
