St John the Evangelist
This church has a modern interior occupying part of an original Victorian church. Most of the building has been adapted for medical use by Eton College but we occupy the upper half of the original Chancel. You can reach the church either by the stairs or by using the lift which is large enough to take wheelchairs. So we are able to welcome everyone.
We have regular traditional services but the flexibility we have with the seating allows us a variety of different service patterns.
There is normally a service of BCP Holy Communion at 10.00 am on the first and third Wednesdays of each month and there are also occasional other services and events.
However, services at Eton have been suspended for the time being
See the calendar on the Home page for dates.
The inside of the church is dominated by the main east window which was given to the original church in 1865 in memory of the Prince Consort who died in 1862. The money for it was raised by public subscription. The main panels represent Christ's appearance after his resurrection to Mary Magdalene, to the disciples by the lake and to the women in the garden. In the picture of the disciples by the lake the dominant figures are those of Jesus with St John the Evangelist. The lower panels show Christ's passion. The upper panels contain subjects depicting the Ressurrection with the Saviour at the top.
