St John the Evangelist, Eton occupies the upper chancel of the original Victorian church (most of the building has been adapted for use by Eton College.)  There are occasional Sunday services here and a midweek BCP eucharist.

St John the Baptist, Eton Wick is the largest church building in the benefice. The style and format of the service is adapted to include children.  There is a room at the rear of the church where we usually host a toddler group and a coffee morning for the community.

St Mary Magdalene, Boveney stands on an ancient site. It was declared redundant in 1975 and is cared for by `The Friends of Friendless Churches’. It hosts three services per year, as well as wedding blessings and memorial services.

St James the Less, Dorney dates from 12th century with wall paintings, box pew, gallery, memorial chapel, some striking modern stained glass. The congregation is welcoming and the church has a particular ministry to wedding couples.
