3Generate Manifestos

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

During the year we will add supporting resources to this page, to help you use the manifestos with your local district, circuit, church or children's/youth group. In the meantime, please see the 2016 supporting resources at the bottom of this page.

Don't forget, you can also use the Big SleepOver and Voice Activated resources to get your children and young people talking!

Interestingly, the spring 2016 edition of the magazine produced by The New Room Bristol contains the first part of an article exploring what John Wesley's Manifesto might have looked like. Perhaps you could use the headings to spark a conversation with your young people? You can find the article on page 8.

Visit the 3GenerateTV YouTube channel for videos on some of the subjects covered at this year's event.
