The Duke of York’s Community Initiative is a Royal Award presented to community projects based in Yorkshire. The schemes need to be owned, developed and led by the people they serve; of real value to the community, well run and an inspiration to others. Individual awards are also given in recognition of exceptional leadership skills.
Driffield Methodist Church is an award holder in both the project and leadership skills categories.
Generously supported by AllChurches Trust Ltd and the Methodist Insurance Fund

DRIFFIELD METHODIST SCHOOLROOM
Our own Joy Ewbank’s book of songs, poems and life stories is now available at a cost of £5 per copy from Hazel Senior. It makes a very interesting read, and proceeds are for the Redevelopment Fund.
The move of utilities was completed in the week of 29 October 2018, and a final clear-out of the building was synchronised to be finished at the same time. The demolition contractor took over the site as from 5 November 2018. The interior was stripped out of fittings, and major progress has been made with the demolition. 95% of the materiel is being recycled. It is expected that the demolition will be completed by early February 2019, followed by archaeological investigations. Tenders for the rebuild have been sent out through the YORBuild 2 Framework as well as to companies that have expressed an interest and responses have to be in by the end of January 2019.
The Four aims of Methodists
Methodism's activities, both alone and with ecumenical and secular partners, are based on four aims known as Our Calling:
· To increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love
· To help people to grow and learn as Christians through mutual support and care
· To be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice
· To make more followers of Jesus Christ.
