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

The large East Window of this church is unusual in that it contains a reproduction of Holman Hunt’s picture

‘The Light of the World’

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:

  • Services

  • Sunday school

  • Baptisms, weddings and funerals


Also, there are:

  • Activities for the local school

  • Coffee mornings

  • Toddler groups

  • Children’s holiday activities


We want the new room to provide a better space with good facilities to properly support what we are doing today, but also invite a wider use, increasing our support and interaction with the local community.

We are asking for help through donations towards building the new room.  We have some funding available, but we need to raise more to reach our goal.
