The large wood sculpture of Christ the King above the free-standing granite altar in the sanctuary was designed by parishioners Albert and Maxine Boyd of Andover and carved by Rodney Woodard of North Conway.  It is lighted by the large windows opposite; in the afternoon the mullions cast shadows replicating the woodwork pattern of the reredos.

Maxine Boyd designed and executed the silk tapestries that hang on the reredos.  They depict  mother and child on the left, and the fisherman on the right.

The needlepoint chair cushions and kneelers at the altar rail, shown below, designed by Irene Moore of Hancock, NH, and executed by several parishioners including Betty Scott, Joan Clarke, Nancy Putnam, Izzy Hunter and Gen Madden.

       At the back of the sanctuary the St. Andrew in traditional Russian egg tempera iconography was painted by Russian-born the V. Rev’d Andrew Tregubov, pastor at The Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church in Claremont, NH.  It was commissioned by Barbara and Ted Brown after a trip to Russia in the late 1990’s and a lecture at St. Andrew’s by Tregubov.  He is the author of a book on the iconography of Gregory Kroug who greatly influenced his work.

    Also at the back, another tapestry of Maxine Boyd, depicting the wise and foolish virgins, sometimes hangs over the door.

       In the choir area are angels in relief, made of clay and painted with gold, they represent former parishioner Will Kieffer’s response to the 150th Psalm:   “Praise him with the blast of the ram’s horn; praise him with lyre and harp. Praise him with timbrel and dance; praise him with strings and pipe. Praise him with resounding cymbals . . .”  In the Memorial Garden more sculptures by Will Kieffer, high relief bronzes with a brown patina, proclaim the mystery of faith:  "Christ has died.  Christ is risen. Christ will come again.”
