3Generate is an annual event planned and shaped by children and young people for children and young people - alongside a team of adult facilitators from the Connexion (the Methodist Church in the whole of Britain), who specialise in working with children and young people.

It is a speak out event for children and young people and is the Children and Youth Assembly of The Methodist Church (Standing Order 250).

It will be held this year, 2019, at Pontins, Southport, from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 November.

For more information see www.methodist.org.uk/our-work/our-work-in-britain/3generate/


Woven into each year's event will be:

  • a chance for children and young people to have a say and vote for their representatives at the Youth President and Youth Rep elections (Jasmin Yeboah, pictured right, is the current Youth President. Her theme for the year is # Courageous - see www.methodist.org.uk/our-work/our-work-in-britain/children-and-youth/the-well-for-workers/well-resources/courageous).
  • 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.
