Year of Celebration

Come and join in - a year to celebrate together

In 1318 the first known vicar of St Andrew's (Geoffrey de Boton) began his work. The 700th anniversary celebrations are under way!

2018 also marks the 25th anniversary of the New Church building.

Throughout the year there will be exhibitions, music, food and much more. This is a time for the whole Eaton community to join in.

Highlights for October and November

The Thursday Celebration café has reopened in the church hall after the summer break. Please note the new time of 10.30am – 12.30pm each Thursday during the autumn/winter period.
