The 3Generate theme

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.

An event shaped by children and young people, for children and young people
As far as possible 3Generate is planned in consultation with children, young people, young adults and their leaders - and is shaped, based on this feedback, by
 a team of adult facilitators, who specialise in working with children and young people. If you or your group would like to be part of this process, find out more about being a Shaper Group here.

Woven into each year's event will be:

  • a chance to vote for their representatives at the Youth President and Youth Rep elections
  • a chance to meet up with friends and make new ones - from other Methodist churches all over the country
  • a weekend of conversation, debate, indoor and outdoor activities, games, music, sport, crafts and challenges
  • time and space to worship together in a range of creative and imaginative ways
  • an opportunity for children and young people to talk about the issues that affect and really matter to them, the world and the Church - to listen to each other and to God.

Find out more by watching some videos featuring previous participants on our 3GenerateTV YouTube channel.
