Mel Gibson’s church has been on total lockdown ever since the whole alleged abuse scandal broke — and according to a source inside Mel’s haven, security’s been cranked up more than ever before.


A member of Mel’s congregation tells TMZ, security at the chapel is on “high alert” — checking IDs and “making sure there aren’t extra people in approved cars.” According to the source, guards have been stationed outside every weekend … as well as at Mel’s house around the clock.
We’re told new, would-be parishioners are persona non grata, for security reasons.
Our source adds Oksana stopped attending the church in February — approximately a month after the alleged tooth/veneer-breaking argument with Mel.
