Welcome to the homepage of St. Augustine's Church. Here you will find information regarding the church, contact details and other relevant details. For events that are happening at St. Augustine's please visit the Parish Diary.

The Church of St. Augustine of Canterbury

Rugeley Parish Church was built in 1822 to replace the older church now known as The Old Chancel, the remains of which still stand on the opposite side of Station Road. It was built as a "preaching" church consisting of the nave and tower. Over the past years there have been additions and alterations to the building but it is still at the heart of the spiritual life of the town.

Almighty God, the light of the faithful
who set your servant St. Augustine of Canterbury to be Bishop in the church,
and sent him and his companions to preach the gospel to the people of this land;
give us grace to keep the faith which he taught, and to follow in his footsteps;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
