Eton Wick Church is the parish church for the communities of Eton and Eton Wick. All ages are welcome and catered for with a mixture of formal and less formal worship with a group for children. The atmosphere is relaxed, yet services are reverential with a feeling of warmth and worship. The life of the church extends beyond Sundays, with a prayerful and supportive congregation, keen to show Jesus Christ’s love in action within our villages.
The church dates from 1867 and is a grade II listed building. It was designed by one of the most active and successful church architects of the Gothic revival, Arthur William Blomfield (1829-99)
The first stained glass window of interest, the ‘Children’s Window’ installed in 1888, was paid for by the Sunday School children themselves through collections made over the previous two years
CHURCH ROOM PROJECT
Our popular church room needs replacing. Built in 1956 it has served us well, but there are things we need to fix:
Too cold - improve insulation and heating
Not enough room - create more space for activities & storage
Limited toilet facilities - provide a wheelchair accessible toilet
No separation of kitchen from activities – create a safer separate kitchen area
No space for private meetings – provide a consultation room
Nowhere for church office – space for a church office
Parts of the structure need repairs - replace
Our existing room cannot provide what we need anymore, so we need to build a new one.
How will it support you?
The room already supports community activities, apart from the usual church related ones such as:
Baptisms, weddings and funerals
Also, there are:
Activities for the local school
Children’s holiday activities
