What happened at 3Generate 2021?

3Generate took place 29-31 October

750 Children attended from 21 Methodist Districts, together with 250 leaders as part of 65 children and young peoples groups.

180 volunteers and staff formed into a “delivery team” to look after venues, act as stewards, provide additional needs support, look after the accommodation village both during the day and overnight, together with registration, reception and a roving youth team.

Children and Young people had 15 different venues to explore, from a park, to a health and wellbeing centre, a town hall, and a theatre royal. All venues were arranged into a “Town” and delivered an exciting programme of both workshops, discussion and performance. An “out of town” arena provided a music venue for artist like ‘Astar’, Paul Cookson, Urban Praise.

Both the Delivery team and the children and young peoples groups spent the weekend in tents erected in 3 NEC Halls. 532 tents, of which the children and young peoples were recovered and recycled from summer festivals.

This was a wonderful weekend of gathering after a long time of being apart. It was joyous to see young people having deep conversations, and exploring their faith together alongside discovering new talents and having a whole lot of fun. Lives will have been changed because of this weekend and we give God great thanks

In 2021, to make the most of our new home at the NEC, we laid the main event out as a ‘3Generate Town’ – complete with lots of immersive activities for every age and interest (click here to download the town map - with a personal programme planner on the reverse - as a PDF):
