S. George the Martyr, Minworth

 

 

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.
