Harvest Festival Service 18 October 2020
If you were unable to attend our thought provoking Harvest Festival Service, here is the address that outlines our commitment to being an Eco-Church.
We would like to welcome Karen Eyre who has been appointed
Children and Family worker for Driffield Methodist Church. She brings with her
experience from similar roles in the Beverley Circuit. She states she would
wish to enhance the relationship between the Driffield Methodist Playgroup and
the Church. Also to, work with church members who have already set the highest
of standards of sustainability and eco-awareness through the thoughtful rebuild
of the new church and the significant upgrade of facilities in the Schoolroom. Prayer spaces in Schools will be another focus of her intentions.

For those who might be interested, we look at progressive theology
and books that have been written about the emerging cosmology
It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand what this means but
participants need to come open-minded on interpretation and
understandings of faith for today. This means a faith that takes
seriously science and the environment and how and what we can
believe in the world today. All open-minded and questioning people
Next meeting Thursday 12 November 2020
and we will discuss the book:

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.
