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.
