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 demolition contractor expects completion and ground clearance by the end of February 2019. Archaeological investigation is booked for 21/22 February 2019. Tenders for the rebuild have been received and are being considered. The Custodian Committee have met to plan for the rebuild, consider the financial position, and review the many elements of fitting out the new building that require consideration. A further update will be issued shortly.
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.
