Welcome to the homepage of the Brereton and Rugeley Parish website, part of the Church of England, and the Diocese of Lichfield.

The Communities of Brereton and Rugeley

Brereton and Rugeley are former coal mining communities and while they have the feel of an urbanised area they stand alone in the heart of a rural part of Staffordshire bounded on the one side by Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and on the other by the Trent Valley, an area of attractive agricultural countryside.

The population of the Parish is 30,000 including children. Brereton and Rugeley are well blessed with shops and good social and care facilities for people of all ages. With the decline of local industry a significant number of people commute to work.

A vigil of hope to remember and pray
for all affected by recent terrorist attacks and the Grenfell Tower disaster

Thursday 29th June, 6.30pm-8.30pm at St Augustine’s Church, Rugeley.

We will be opening St. Augustine's for the public to come and reflect on recent events, by lighting a candle, sitting quietly, and being led in some prayers of hope for healing, comfort and peace. This is a Churches Together event.

St Augustine’s will be open from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. All are very welcome. People are encouraged to bring flowers and candles.
