Our present community is the result of three parishes coming together under the charge of one priest. St Augustine’s serves Meir, which is a large housing development on the southern edge of Stoke-on-Trent. This was joined by St Mary’s, Cresswell in 2001. St Mary’s is to the south east of Meir and situated in open countryside on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands. Then, in 2012, St Filumena’s, Caverswall became the third parish to join us to make our present community. Caverswall has a boundary with both the Meir and Cresswell parishes.
