ST JOHN THE EVANGELIST, ETON

Church Close, Eton SL4 6AP

Services every 1st & 3rd Wednesday at 10:00 am

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 can welcome everyone

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 Resurrection with the Saviour at the top
