Great moments with great artists at our Sacred Music Festival

10.30am-12.30pm in St Laurence Church this coming Saturday 9th July: master musicians K. Sridhar (sarod) and Jesse Bannister (saxophone) offer a unique combination of performance and information on “the Unstruck Sound.” They will perform Indian raga, including improvising together and then will open the floor for questions and answers. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to listen with your heart more than your head! An extraordinary opportunity to awaken to the yoga of sound with two masters of the tradition. Tickets £12 available at the door – or you may like to secure your ticket at
K. Sridhar was born into an Indian musical family and trained in classical Indian music with the sarod from the age of five years. The sarod is a fretless instrument that can produce continuous the slides between notes which are so important in Indian music. Sridhar was the youngest ever member of Ravi Shankar’s orchestral group and started performing at the early age of 25. He lives in Stroud and teaches internationally.
Jesse Bannister is a world leading Indian Classical saxophonist, composer & educator. Jesse’s musical credits include the Halle Orchestra, Talvin Singh, Aruna Sairam and Pt. Ajoy Chakraborty. Jesse is a unique and groundbreaking musician and he creates music to bring people back into a place of harmony.

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
