Thorsminde Kirke - knæfald - alter

The Altarpiece and pulpit are originally from Thyborøn Church. The altarpiece  from 1908 is by Johan Mielch (student of Skovgaard). The baptismal font was originally from the monastery Skærrum Kloster, previously used as watering trough for cattle.

Three mosaic panes by Erik Winkler. North of the church you find a memorial stone with tables with names of the men lost at sea (nine fishermen were lost on 14 February 1979 when their boat got covered with ice).

The pews and the pulpit are secondhand as well. They came from a closed church in Thy
