St George the Martyr, Minworth

St George has served the village since 1909. It is part of the Parish, with St Cuthbert's Castle Vale, whose present encumbent is the Reverend Father James Cope S.S.C.

St George is located in the village of Minworth on the eastern edge of Birmingham. Minworth is one of the oldest settlements in the region and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Until the church was opened in 1909, villagers went to church in the neighbouring village of Curdworth. After a reorganisation in the Diocese of Birmingham, the church became a part of the parish of Castle Vale with St Cuthbert's.

Church Services at St George

The church is built on worship. Regular services are detailed below and with the News Sheet show those services that people need at various times in their lives.

The Mass (Holy Communion or the Eucharist) is the main service, regularily celebrated on Sundays at 09:00am.  See the latest News Sheet for weekday services and any changes.


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

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


The Church is here for every part of life: at baptism, marriage and for funerals. But there are also other times when people might 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 new homes blessed, and others wish to hold a service to remember someone special. All of these services can be discussed with the clergy. If you have any questions, please contact the clergy, or you might like to look at the Church of England website.

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.
