Church of St Mary the Virgin, Eaton Bray with EdlesboroughWELCOME to our parish website. Whether you are looking for specific information about our church and parish or are simply browsing, we hope you will find something of interest about our historic parish church, about our worship and activities, and about the parish of Eaton Bray with Edlesborough in the Diocese of St Albans of the Church of England.

On this site you can tour our beautiful church and learn something of its history, you can catch up with news and future events, and you can find out more about our worship, ministry and outreach.

We hope you enjoy doing that, and after the "virtual" experience may we invite you to come and share the real thing, by joining us one Sunday at worship or by becoming involved in the life of our parish.
