Welcome to the homepage of the Brereton and Rugeley Parish website, Part of the Church of England, and the Diocese of Lichfield.
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.
The Season of Lent 2017 - Rhythms of Grace
The Parish Lent Course will help us to explore the depths and richness of God's love for all of us. It is being run at two different times in two different locations - Wednesday lunch times (12-2pm) at St. Augustine's and Wednesday evenings (7-8.30pm) at St. Michael's on March 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th and April 5th.
Leaflets will be available soon in any of our parish churches, or click here to download a copy.
If you would like to know more about the Community of St Chad there is the Annual Service of commitment at Lichfield Cathedral at 11am on Saturday 4th March, when Bishop Michael will be preaching. It will be an opportunity to learn about the Community, to pray, and to join the community or to renew membership for a further 12 months. Do stay on for sandwiches and cake after the service if you can.
