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 has a public house, The Royal Oak.
Church Eaton also has a cricket club, which is part of the North Staffordshire south Cheshire Cricket Leagues and play in division 8.
