Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Oakengates

About Us

'In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.'

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that until further notice no Public Worship can be held in Church of England Churches.

We are still Church though and we will continue to pray, continue to send services out to those who would like to receive them by email, continue to post information on here, on Facebook (search Holy Trinity Oakengates) and on our website.

If you would like us to pray for you please contact us.

Under normal circumstances:

We welcome visitors to our church, which has a lively pattern of modern and traditional services.

We are part of the new Benefice of Holy Trinity Oakengates, Holy Trinity Wrockwardine Wood<span style="font-size: 1rem;"> and St. Peter's Priorslee.</span>

The Bishop of Lichfield has appointed Revd Debbie Loughran as Vicar of the Benefice.

There are often Messy Church events which take place.

If you would like to receive the weekly newsletter regularly via email please contact the [email protected] requesting you would like to receive it weekly.

We are an Anglican Church serving the people of Oakengates, Ketley Bank and anyone who loves to worship with Bells and Incense. We are proud of our churchmanship and worship style and we want to shout about it. We have a traditional robed choir, an accomplished organist, acolytes and altar servers. We have all age ranges worshipping God from 5months to (well lets say) much older. We are a family and we love to worship God together. We would very much like you to join us at some point to say Hi and to become a part of the family we cherish.

Our church has been tastefully re-ordered to allow for comfortable seating, a warm building, tea and coffee facilities and a toilet. Our worship area is flexible and able to be changed to suit the needs of all - especially important for our fellowship activities such as whist on the third Tuesday of each month at 7pm.

We came to be as the mid 1800's saw a rapid increase in the local population of Oakengates. Due to a rich abundance of coal and iron seams, workers migrated here to mine the ores. To fulfil the spiritual needs of these workers the Church of England responded to the need by deciding to create a new parish under the recently passed New Parishes Act. Following an appeal for donations to build a new church, £3100 was raised by public subscription during the following five years and Holy Trinity was consecrated on 25th January 1855 by Bishop Lonsdale of Lichfield.

The church and parish have undergone many changes in the 150 years since the consecration of the building but we continue to ensure Godly worship and endeavour to make discipleship, mission and outreach our priority.
