Karen

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.

Discussion Group


For those who might be interested, we look at progressive theology

and books that have been written about the emerging cosmology

theology.

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

are welcome.

Next meeting Thursday 12 November 2020

and we will discuss the book:

SOCIAL DISTANCE LIKE A WESLEY

Avoid all the people you can,

by all the means you can,

in all the ways you can,

in all the places you can,

at all the times you can,

as long as ever you can.



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.
