Spiritual Communion

 

My Jesus,

 

I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.

I love You above all things,

and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,

come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there

and unite myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.

 

Amen

 

At this time, please be especially diligent in your daily prayers, be aware of friends or neighbours who may be feeling very isolated, lonely and frightened. If you have Sky TV; EWTN (the Roman Catholic Eternal Word Television Network) broadcasts the daily Mass several times a day on Sky channel 588

 

About Us

 

Minworth is mentioned in the Domesday Book and is one of the oldest settlements in the region. It was formerly a detached hamlet of Curdworth and in 1909 the Bishop of Birmingham dedicated the Church of St George on Minworth Green (a chapel of Curdworth). The historian William Dargue described the building as "built in brick with stone dressings in a simple Early English style. There is a 3-lancet (liturgical) east window and a large 4-lancet west window in Early English Gothic. The building is not geographically aligned east-west, the east end almost faces north. There is a bellcote above the entrance brought from Water Orton old church. It has a single, one hundredweight tolling bell. The bell is inscribed: + I WILL SOVND AND CALL THE CONGREGATION 1709".

S. George has served the village of Minworth since 1909. It is now part of the Castle Vale Parish, with S. Cuthbert of Lindisfarne. The present incumbent is The Reverend Father James Cope S.S.C.

 

 

Church Services

The Church is here for every part of life, including baptism, confirmation, marriage and funerals. There are however other times when people feel the need to come to God; Confession (the sacrament of reconciliation) is when people freely tell God what troubles them and hear his absolution. Some people wish to have their homes blessed, and others wish to hold a service to remember someone special. If you have any questions the clergy are happy to discuss any of these services. 

Mass

The Mass is our main service celebrated on Sunday mornings: Readings from scripture {the Bible}, homily {a short sermon} and Holy Communion/Eucharist

Prayer

Prayer is at the heart of worship and Daily Prayer happens each day throughout the Church.

Baptism

Baptism (or Christening) marks the beginning of a new journey in faith. Baptism takes place regularly during the year.

Safeguarding

 

     
 

 

The Church of England is committed to Promoting a Safer Church for everyone. Safeguarding is the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture.

 

We will seek to promote the welfare of children, young people and adults, work to prevent abuse from occurring, protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.

 

If you have any concerns about a child, a young person, an adult who may be vulnerable or someone who works for or volunteers for the Church of England please contact:
