New beginnings - Driffield Methodist Church, East Yorkshire
A thanksgiving service was led by the Revd Leslie Newton, chair of the Yorkshire North and East District to commemorate their old chapel building before it was redeveloped. The new building will mark an exciting new beginning for the church and its congregation.
The new church will have sustainable design features, improved accessibility and a welcoming, safe, hygienic, and healthy environment for all church and community activities as well as facilitating an exciting set of new partnerships, mission and grant giving.
The building will make a significant contribution to the town centre regeneration, countering the change in emphasis from retail towards services, lifestyle and community engagement.
