A Little History


A little history.

Until the middle of the 19th Century Brereton and Rugeley were one parish and then became separate parishes but remained good neighbours. In more recent years the friendship between the two parishes matured into a number of areas of active co-operation and after 18 months of discussions it was decided that the parishes would be better equipped for service and mission by formally uniting as one. On 1st June 2006 the separate parishes of Rugeley and Brereton became officially the Parish Brereton and Rugeley. In September 2017 the neighbouring parish of Armitage with Handsacre become part of the Team Ministry.

The Team Ministry is led by a group of lay and ordained staff and volunteers. Meet them here.
