St Augustine's - Parish Church of Rugeley

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.

"What we’re here for”

St Augustine’s Church is here for the people for Rugeley. We support everybody, especially those in need. We also exist to encourage everyone to join in, to play their part to strengthen and enrich our community.
We also exist as a sacred space, a place that has been prayed in for almost 200 years, and before that in the church that is now known as the Old Chancel since the 10th century. We want everyone to discover the treasure within, the peace the place provides, the space to make sense of life, to discover the still centre of our lives where God can be found.

We want to extend what we collectively can do together. To do this we need two things:

Firstly, people to volunteer and join us working to support our community. There are lots of things to do, everything from keeping the building open, and welcoming – tea makers and people with listening skills welcome! – to people wanting to support our schools work (Enhanced DBS checks required for Safeguarding purposes).

To enquire about these and other opportunities email
or phone the parish office (leave a message if the office is closed) 01889 574157.

Secondly, we need money to keep the building open, warm and beautiful. We need money to train volunteers, pay wages and salaries of staff.

We have launched giving by text where you can give up to £30 per person per day by texting SAUG99 £amount to 70070.

Sing for Chrstmas!

We had a good response for our Christmas Choir, which resulted in a much expanded group for the Service of Lessons and Carols. Thank  you to everyone who worked so hard and sang so beautifully.

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.
