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.

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.
