22 - 24 November 2019, Pontins in Southport
3Generate is an action-packed and inspiring weekend, primarily designed to hear the voice of children and young people across the Methodist Church. It focuses on fun, faith and friends. To see what happens, visit our YouTube channel 3GenerateTV.
This year's 3Generate theme is 'Where is God In your Story?' This is to reflect the fact that, responding to a challenge from 3Generate, the Methodist Church has decided to make 2019-2020 a year of Testimony. Delegates, volunteers and group leaders at 3Generate 2019 will be asked to notice where God is at work in their lives and to share their story of knowing God.
Our Youth President for 2019-2020, Thelma Commey, has her own theme for the year. This is #JesusLovesAll. Thelma is excited about celebrating the unconditional love of God with those who attend 3Generate 2019, and reflecting together on how we share that love with others.
What do we mean by hearing the voice? Throughout the weekend we seek to discover the thoughts and opinions of children and young people, on a variety of subjects and in a variety of ways. Click here to see an illustration of how we hear the voice of delegates at 3Generate.
Everything the children and young people say at 3Generate is gathered together and used, through a careful process of prayerful discernment, to create the 3Generate Manifesto for the coming year (see the video below) and the 3Generate report to Methodist Conference. You can watch the full 3Generate presentation to Methodist Conference 2019.
The 2019 Manifesto was shaped by the views and opinions of the 1,100 children and young people, aged 8 - 23, who were welcomed at 3Generate 2018. They came from all over the country - from Scotland to the Channel Islands! Watch the video above to find out more.
Volunteering for 2019 has closed. Please email us if you were planning to apply this year. The volunteering page is still live and includes practical information like role descriptions. Inspiring stories from previous volunteers are available for those considering volunteering in 2020.
