3Generate 2021 Event
On this page:
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. However, we are still planning for the 2021 event to take place at the NEC next year.
Our 3Generate 2021 theme is ‘In Tune’, and we will explore together what it means to be in tune with each other and with God and how we all have a role to play as part of the Body of Christ.
The 3Generate Children and Youth Assembly is open to 8 – 23 year olds and not only offers loads of fun and engaging activities and worship, but also plays a vital role in the decision making processes of the Methodist Church. In 2021, we will make the most of our new home at the NEC,laying the main event out as a ‘3Generate Town’ – complete with loads of immersive activities for every age and interest. We’ll be encouraging those attending to expect to encounter God everywhere – through physical activities and sport, through creative and performing arts, through quiet contemplation and through discussion, debate and taking action as agents of change in the world. This will culminate in us making our Sunday morning ‘covenant’ – a promise, between us and God, that we will try to act on what we’ve heard and experienced.
Volunteering at the 3Generate event can be an exciting and rewarding challenge; a chance to be part of a vibrant national event. We would love to have you on board for 2021 and we will have details very soon regarding roles and how to sign up! Volunteer roles are currently available for 3Generate 365, which can be found here.
Bringing a group
The 3Generate event is a place where group leaders, children and young people get the opportunity to engage with a fun-filled programme, all weekend at the NEC. We will have more details later for how to register your group, but for now, follow this link to give you a taste of what happens during the weekend and engage with 3Generate 365 as a group to prepare you for the event.
Shaping the event
We have launched our programme planning for 3Generate 2021, which, this year, will be carried out by a number of satellite groups that will be meeting virtually, all year round, to bring together an exciting and immersive programme for the event. If you are interested in joining one of these satellite groups to help plan (whether you can attend the actual weekend or not) please register your interest below:
