St. Peter's Church, Castle Street, Cambridge, CB3 0AH

Megan Fitzoliver has created a range of sculptural pieces that will be set in and around tiny St Peter's, encouraging contemplation in your own time and way, a practice known as Visio Divina. The hours of the installation will be marked by the ringing of the church bell, and interludes of plainsong and poetry.

There will be a short service of Vespers (evening prayers) at 6pm and a candlelit service of Compline (traditionally pre-bed prayers or chanting) at 9pm.

Ascension Burial Ground, All Souls Lane (off Huntingdon Road)

Why pay gym fees when you can have some healthy outdoor exercise, helping to clear graves under expert guidance as part of this 'macro-gardening' project. This monthly working party meets for a couple of hours monthly at the Burial Ground (off Huntingdon Road), to work under the guidance of Rod Ailes. Warm clothing, stout shoes and gloves are advised, and you can do as much or as little as you wish - all help will be greatly appreciated. Tools will be available but you can also bring along your own secateurs, loppers and waste sacks, and do bring a drink as well, as it can be thirsty work.
