St Laurence's Church Stroud hosts a weekly 'Silent Sitting' contemplation session every Tuesday morning.

Open to anyone of faith or indeed, none, the sessions are for those who "would like to share half-an-hour's silence in the early morning."

Participants can use the time as they wish, be it "for prayer, contemplation or meditation."

Attendees are also invited to join the group, currently numbering some 25, at a local cafe afterwards.

The church and cafe is fully accessible for those with mobility limitations.
