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.

Pastoral support During the Corona Virus Pandemic
During this time of social isolation the Pastoral Support team will endeavour to maintain contact with all Church Members by telephone, Skype, or email. There will not be any home visits made at this time. As the Pastoral Support Secretary, I have tried to ensure that every Church Member has sight of a copy of the DMW each week and I thank all those who have volunteered to put these through letterboxes.
If you have a need which you feel a member of the Pastoral team may be able to help with please contact your visitor in the first instance and we will discuss the best way forward with whatever that might be.
As a member of the Church family please can I ask that you pray for one another, contact one another regularly, especially if you are aware of individuals living alone or ill. That phone call may be a lifeline for someone who is feeling lonely and isolated.
Also please pray for those affected by the virus around the world including those living in densely populated areas where the virus has the potential to spread rapidly causing devastation to their communities.
Take care, keep safe and keep well and I will look forward to seeing you all in V+Church once this crisis has passed
With love to all,
Rev Richard Teal will present a 20 minute act of worship, every Sunday, available on the "Worship During the Pandemic" tab to the left, or click here:
The suggested shared time is 1030 am.
Please let all your family, friends and colleagues know of this opportunity. Also see "Services on the Web" below for other options.

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.
