Manifestos and resources

The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission. In response to this, each age stream at 3Generate produces a manifesto, based on the conversations that took place and expressing the views, concerns and aspirations of the children and young people who attended.

The 2017 manifestos, created by each age stream at 3Generate 2016, are available here:

8 - 11s Manifesto in English

8 - 11s Manifesto in Welsh

11 - 18s Manifesto in English

11 - 18s Manifesto in Welsh

18 - 23s Manifesto in English

18 - 23s Manifesto in Welsh

Resources to help you engage with these manifestos can be found, arranged by subject heading, below. Don't forget you can also use 3GenTV and the Big SleepOver and Voice Activated resources to get your children and young people talking!
