|S. George The Martyr, Minworth||
The Second Sunday of Advent
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Sunday, 5 December 2021
O Lord, raise up, we pray, your power
and come among us,
and with great might succour us;
that whereas, through our sins and wickedness
we are grievously hindered
in running the race that is set before us,
your bountiful grace and mercy
may speedily help and deliver us;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honour and glory, now and for ever.
THE SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT
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.
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.

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.
