The Church of England parish church of Saint Editha  largely dates from the 12th century. It has a square west tower with a spire, a large 7-light east window of fine stained glass by C.E. Kempe depicting scenes from the life of Christ, and "the broken and repaired remains of an elaborate early 12th century font, closely related to the font at Bradley," and that at Lilleshall, except that the font at Bradley is in much better condition. Nikolaus Pevsner states that these fonts were all made at Gnosall.
Church Eaton also has a cricket club, which plays in Division 2 of the Staffordshire Club Cricket Championship.
