The time capsule had been specially made for the church by workers at Peter Brotherhoods, and representatives from the firm were present at the service and assisted with the burial of the capsule.

Following a thanksgiving service the congregation went outside and, in the presence of the rector and churchwardens, offered prayers as the capsule was placed into the ground.

The metal box was packed with information and photographs of all the special events that the church had put on during 2017, such as a summer fete, and special christening and wedding anniversary services. There was also more general information about the life of the church in 2017.
