OUR ECO CHURCH AT DRIFFIELD METHODIST CHURCH

Rocha

DMC is an active Church member of the A Rocha programme, have you ever visited their website? Do you know what it is about?

You can:

1. Ask our representative (Lesley) for details and what you can do to support the Programme.

2. Sign up for the A Rocha Newsletter by following this link (external website).

3. Visit the A Rocha website (external website) and learn about the excellent work they promote. We are well on the way but a consistent and all-engaging approach throughout the church is necessary to make a difference. 


Following the theme of injustice as a core value of Methodists (see bottom of this page) consider this from Martin Luther King Jnr:

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

So when did you last think of this injustice?


China’s Repression of Uyghurs in Xinjiang


More than a million Muslims have been arbitrarily detained in China’s Xinjiang region since 2017. The re-education camps are just one part of the government’s crackdown on Uyghurs.

About eleven million Uyghurs—a mostly Muslim, Turkic-speaking ethnic group—live in the north-western region of Xinjiang.  Those not detained are subjected to intense surveillance, religious restrictions, forced labour, and sterilizations.

GSHP

Jens Stoltenberg, the secretary general of the western military alliance, said countries would be making a mistake if they traded short-term economic gain for long-term security.

“Freedom is more important than free trade. The protection of our values is more important than profit,” Stoltenberg told the World Economic Forum.

Thanks to foresight during our redevelopment we installed many sustainable features such as the GSHP above. We are protected from the consequences of fuel price rises. Let's continue to support Ukraine.

The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion

The relationship between science and religion is fascinating, and fundamental to faith. The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion is dedicated to researching and understanding this. There is a wealth of interesting information (follow this link to an external website) and resources to consider. It is good to see the involvement of other Methodist Churches.

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.
