What is 3Generate?
3Generate aims to create an inclusive and diverse space for the prophetic voice of children and young people to emerge and be heard, enabling them to speak courageously, and listen to God and each other. Through the process of 3Generate, children and young people are equipped to become participants in advocacy, change and growth and have an impact in their local Methodist communities. 3Generate calls the Church to listen to, and be in relationship and dialogue with and amongst, children and young people, so that change can happen together as a community.
Due to Government guidance on social distancing because of the coronavirus outbreak, and the uncertainty about when large face to face gatherings can restart, it will not be possible for us to hold the 3Generate Children and Youth Assembly at the NEC in 2020. It’s been a really difficult decision for us to make, but our primary concern, as always, is for 3Generate to be a safe and enjoyable event. We are still planning for the 2021 event to take place at the NEC next year.
Although we won’t be able to meet in person this year, we have exciting plans for 3Generate 365, which will launch in September 2020. Children and young people from across the Connexion will have the opportunity to gather virtually to explore this year’s theme ‘Tune In’ and listen to what God is saying to them. 3Generate 365 will provide opportunities for children and young people to pray, listen, notice, discuss and explore how God may want them to be active as disciples in the world. If you are interested in volunteering or engaging a group in 3Generate 365, then please register your interest through the button below:
