Events and Volunteer Opportunities


The restoration of the churchyard has been made possible by a great number of people giving their time, energy and expertise to advising, planning and working physically in the churchyard.

So - take a breath of fresh air and join us!

We are a diverse group of people, from students to senior citizens, from regulars to droppers in.

The time of our working sessions are usually:

Wednesday mornings 10.00 -12.00

Volunteers help by:

Tools are provided.

From time to time it is possible for volunteers to attend training courses run by nature conservation organisations.


Planting days are organised in the spring and the autumn.

Occasional special events are organised for local residents and families to enjoy the wildlife and discover the interesting links with local history. The churchyard has also been a much appreciated  venue during the Cowley Road Carnival.

If you would like to be informed about events and special work parties please email us so that we can add you to our email list.
