The service was led by the rector, the Revd Robert Cotton. The choir sang the anthem, The Call of Wisdom, by local composer, Will Todd.

The anthem was originally written for the Queen’s diamond jubilee in 2012 and given its first official performance by a children’s choir in St Paul’s Cathedral that year.
