The Parish of St Cuthbert, Castle Vale with St George, Minworth is part of the Diocese of Birmingham in the Church of England.


The present Incumbent is The Revd Father James Cope  S.S.C.

Over 10,000 people live in this community, to the north east of Birmingham in the English Midlands. The estate was built in the 1960s on a former Royal Air Force airfield, originally accommodating people from the Aston and Nechells districts of the city. 

St Cuthbert's Church has served the community, since 1973, not only as a place of prayer and worship but also as a base for many other activities and organisations that bring together residents on Castle Vale.


The Parish is In The Pastoral and Sacramental Care of The Bishop of Ebbsfleet and St Cuthbert's offers both regular services and services for the stages of life (such as weddings, baptisms and funerals). Details can be found on the Church Services page.


The church building has a modern interior which gives a light, airy space for worship. It also has two halls used by different organisations for a variety of activities. The church halls are available for hire, please contact the Hall Bookings Secretary for information.


For help with all enquiries please see the Church Contacts.

Gospel from the Easter Garden

John 20:1-9

It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb.
She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved.
"They have taken the Lord out of the tomb," she said "and we don't know where they have put him." So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb.
They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in.
Simon Peter who was following now came up, went right into the tomb, saw the linen cloths on the ground, and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself.
Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed.
Till this moment they had failed to understand the teaching of scripture, that he must rise from the dead.
