At 7pm on November 15th2018, near the grounds of its newly restored forecourt, St John’s Waterloo will bury a unique TIME CAPSULE. The box, filled with a handful of carefully selected objects, will capture the zeitgeist of the age for future generations to uncover and explore. 
 
In burying the Time Capsule, St John’s also plants hopes and visions for our future, in an age of tumult and uncertainty. 
 
Chief among those visions is our mission to renew by 2021, St John’s, London’s much-loved Festival Church. The Reignite 2021 campaign, launched as the Time Capsule is buried, aims to renovate and reignite  this landmark building. We want to make St John's Waterloo primed and ready to serve this busy spot in London far into the future! You can read about the Reignite 2021.
