The Duke of York’s Community Initiative.
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.
Hazel's Charity Walk
Hazel says: "80 miles of walking during the month of August is my target. This will follow the Wilberforce Way in Yorkshire from Hull Minster to York Minster (in a series of day walks) plus a little extra to make up the 80 miles. I am doing this for two reasons: in September I hope to celebrate my 80th birthday and, as I love walking, it seemed a good way to mark the occasion: making it a sponsored event is important to me , especially to be supporting Mind UK."
Good luck Hazel! Follow this link to the JustGiving Page for more details and to make a contribution:

The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion
The relationship between science and religion is fascinating, and fundamental to faith. The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion is dedicated to researching and understanding this. There is a wealth of interesting information (follow this link to an external website) and resources to consider. It is good to see the involvement of other Methodist Churches.
Exploring the Big Questions: scientists and theologians share their views
Every scientist experiences some sense of awe and wonder in their work, whether it’s something mathematical, something very beautiful, something very surprising, something that just logically fits together so wonderfully, there’s always that sense. And for a Christian there is also something that goes further – their sense of awe and wonder can feed into their worship of God, the great creator who made it all.

Seeing the Forest and the Trees
An interesting brass image of John Wesley. It is extremely heavy and required taking apart to paint the black background and polish the brass, removing the lacquer that had been applied. Probably made C1850. Just 4" x 5" but it stands out on the wall or on a picture stand on the sideboard.
Seal of the Methodist Conference, bought at auction and now donated to:

The Schoolroom has a new floor covering. This makes cleanliness, hygiene and maintenance in these difficult times easier to achieve. Thank you to the Horace Taylor Trust for their generous grant for this project. Also, many thanks to the few volunteers who not only organised this significant improvement, but who contributed through joinery, fitting, clearing, cleaning, and finally polishing!
A Poem by Joy Ewbank
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.
