The Duke of York’s Community Initiative.
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.
After an extremely long wait the chairs arrived on 26 April 2021. Thank you to all those that worked so very hard at getting them into the Worship Space.
We are so fortunate to have Denise execute these wonderful textile images for us! They show many of the activities we host and the aspirations we have within our new buildings. We look forward to all these groups sharing our future. Pop in and see them yourselves in the Cloister space.
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.
Exploring the Big Questions: scientists and theologians share their views
Every scientist experiences some sense of awe and wonder in their work, whether it’s something mathematical, something very beautiful, something very surprising, something that just logically fits together so wonderfully, there’s always that sense. And for a Christian there is also something that goes further – their sense of awe and wonder can feed into their worship of God, the great creator who made it all.

REMOTE PANCAKE LUNCH
The little packs all ready to be allocated to the selected deliverer. Wrapped in grease proof paper with string and a heart with the name and a message on, as well as the syrup in a recyclable/reusable plastic container. Extremely well organised, thank you especially to Lesley that put it all together.
Thank you as well to all those that contributed towards the remote Pancake Day. All portions of pancakes, selected cakes, syrup and best wishes were delivered. It was extremely well received and very much appreciated by all recipients. To spread a little joy in these times of limited social interaction is indeed important, Thank you.
Remember - it is not about the pancakes particularly, more about sharing something we do every year.
An interesting brass image of John Wesley. It is extremely heavy and required taking apart to paint the black background and polish the brass, removing the lacquer that had been applied. Probably made C1850. Just 4" x 5" but it stands out on the wall or on a picture stand on the sideboard.
Seal of the Methodist Conference, bought at auction and now donated to:

The Schoolroom has a new floor covering. This makes cleanliness, hygiene and maintenance in these difficult times easier to achieve. Thank you to the Horace Taylor Trust for their generous grant for this project. Also, many thanks to the few volunteers who not only organised this significant improvement, but who contributed through joinery, fitting, clearing, cleaning, and finally polishing!

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.
