Methodist youth event selling out fast in record breaking year
Tickets for the Methodist Children & Youth Assembly, 3Generate, are selling out at record speed, for what is the event's largest gathering to date.
Tickets for the 8-11 and 11-18 age-stream have almost sold
out, despite more than 100 extra spaces being made available.
700 young people from across the country are expected to attend this year's Methodist Children & Youth Assembly, 3Generate, an annual weekend event for young people, this year taking place at the PGL Liddington near Swindon, 25-27 November.
Youth President Craig Gaffney said: "3Generate is always a fantastic event. Young people come and contribute to interesting discussions, have fun with friends new and old, and spend time exploring their faith. Over the weekend, young people will have the chance to have their voice heard and make a real, lasting contribution to the Methodist Church."
Every year, two spaces are reserved for each District of the Methodist Church to ensure young people from across the country are able to have their voices heard. Twenty-two of the thirty-one Methodist Districts are being represented so far, and only thirteen reserved spaces are left.
For the first time ever, a further fifteen spaces have been reserved for young people with additional needs, where one to one support and an integrated programme with tailored activities will be made available.
Craig added: "By better providing for children and young
people with additional needs, we hope to empower all of the
Church's young people and ensure no voice is left unheard."
