Having moved to the Liddington Adventure Centre inSwindon, we've been able to open up even more spaces for more youngpeople to join the fun. With abseiling, debates, games, worship,specially commissioned slam poetry and more there's something foreveryone. But as well as having fun; it's about contributing andtaking part. At 3Generate, young people have the chance to havetheir voice heard and make a real, lasting contribution to theChurch."
