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.
Driffield Methodist Church
Driffield Methodist Church is part of the Driffield-Hornsea Circuit. We have a variety of worship within the circuit and you are assured of a warm welcome at any of the Churches. We are also part of the Yorkshire North and East District of The Methodist Church of Great Britain.
17 September 2018 is an important day in the redevelopment of our Church as we gained District Consent for the project. The move of utilities is in progress, the demolition contractor selected, the abandoning of the building after 1 October 2018, final Planning Consent granted, we are about to move into the most significant change that has happened to our membership and community in a very long time. Demolition starts on 5 November 2018 after a very busy week diverting power from the existing Church to the Schoolroom, and cutting all other utilities.
The Good Company Lunch Club
The Good Company Lunch Club met for the fifth time on 13 October 18. It is the first time we have used the Schoolroom where it will continue to meet on the second Saturday of every month, until the new building is completed. Thank you to all the volunteers that do so much to contribute to the success of the venture through their tireless dedication and generosity which is so well received by those that love to attend.

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.
