Methodist Children & Youth Assembly 2011: Book now

• £70, including food, accommodation and all activities.

The Annual Methodist Children & Youth Assembly, 3Generate, will take place at the Pioneer Centre, Cleobury Mortimer, in Shropshire 4 - 6 November 2011.

3Generate enables the church to hear from children and young people, and for children and young people to hear from each other, have fun, find support, learn from one another and make a contribution to the wider Church. Following consultation, this year's event is going to be bigger and better than ever, with three streams catering for a wider age range: 9 to 13 years olds, 14 to 17 years olds, and 18 to 23 years olds.

"3Generate is more than an event," said Jude Levermore, Acting Director of Children and Youth. "By facilitating three different age streams, we can ensure that we really focus on what matters to our children and young people. They will have the opportunity to influence Church decisions, as well as decide who gets to represent them nationally. And we're going to have a lot of fun too!"

Programme highlights include singer-songwriter and Director of the Christian Socialist Movement Andy Flannagan and Lat Blaylock, a writer and educator with a passion for making RE come alive. Also on the bill is Jamie Hill. After touring with bands like Why? and Quench, Jamie is now the Youth and Student Manager at the Bible Society, enthusing young people with a big vision of what the Bible can be.

There'll also be cutting edge music from MOBO award-winning gospel rapper Guvna B; one of the leading lights of the next generation of UK gospel rappers, Tunday; and the unique Leke, with a heart for worship.

Additionally, those bringing young people in the 9 to 13 age-range can be part of a weekend of training, reflection and inspiration designed to equip and inspire them in their work.

As well as fun, making friendship, worship and learning, the young people attending will get to vote for their new full-time Youth President and have their say on future decisions to be made in the Methodist Church. Those over the age of 18 will get the opportunity to develop their leadership skills.

Everyone will also get to use the adventure area, complete with climbing towers, bouldering walls, high ropes, indoor archery, raft-building, bridge-building and much more.
