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

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 initial groundwork has been progressing for the rebuild of the Church. After the first month the ground levels have been reduced, footings dug out and filled, and drainage and Ground Source Heat Pump piping set. Initial brickwork starts in the week 13 May 2019. The Custodian Committee met to consider the progress of all the sub-committees engaged in the fitting out of the new Church. There will be an initial Contract progress meeting on 15 May 2019, and shortly after that the first incremental payment to the contractor.
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.
