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.

Hands at Work

Dan Wasp, a long term volunteer from the UK who lives and works at Hands at Work in South Africa is visiting the UK and he will be speaking at St John's Church, Heath Hayes on the evening of 1st December.
Dan has helped on two of the teams that Rev'd Brian has been on, visiting the community with them and helping them analyse the things they have seen.
Please come along to hear more about the work that Hands at Work does from someone who has built his life and family around that work.
