WELCOME 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.
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.
2019 marks the 800th anniversary of the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Eaton Bray. An 11th or 12th century church may have stood on the site, built of wood or wattle and daub, but for 800 years the church we recognise today has served as a focus for worship and prayer for the village of Eaton Bray and, since 1975 it has been the Parish Church of the newly created Parish of Eaton Bray with Edlesborough.
St Mary's PCC Fundraising Committee raises valuable funds every year for the running of St Mary's Church, Eaton Bray. Money raised by the 100 Club will be used to maintain the fabric and structure of our historic church. This year, in particular, we are also raising money to help fund toilet facilities in the church.
