Book your place here

Children and young people will get the chance to change and challenge the church, the world and each other at this year's 3Generate. 3Generate is the Methodist Church's Children's and Youth Assembly and will take place 16-18 November this year at Whitemoor Lakes Centre in Lichfield.

Three separate streams cater for a wide age range: 8 to 13 years old (broadened from last year), 14 to 17 years old, and 18 to 23 years old. Each stream works in a way specially suited to its age group, with discussion, sharing and worship, bringing our hopes dreams and reality to God. There will also be opportunities for the streams to come together for worship and learning throughout the weekend.

"At the heart of 3Generate is a commitment to helping young Methodists make a difference in their church, to one another and to the world," said Methodist Youth President Sam Taylor. "It's an amazing opportunity to share, learn and worship together, and hopefully get a glimpse of what God's got in store for us."

Last year's 3Generate saw young people between the ages of 9 and 23 joining in worship, reflection and learning, as well as outdoor activities and enjoying cutting edge music from the likes of MOBO award-winning gospel rapper Guvna B.

This year's event is shaping up to be even bigger and better. The venue is perfect for young people to explore and let their hair down with a range of facilities including high ropes courses, a zip wire, fencing and indoor archery, not to mention pristine lakes and acres of national forest just next door.

And it's not just for children and young people. The Church is partnering with Cliff College to deliver high quality and innovative training for children and youth workers. Those bringing young people can be part of a weekend of training, reflection and inspiration designed to equip and inspire them in their work.

Tickets cost £80 each, including food, accommodation and all activities. Young people and their leaders may apply to their Districts for help with the costs.
