3Generate 2019, Methodist Children & Youth Assembly | 22-24 November at Pontins, Southport
Further to the letter sent out by the Southport Circuit at the beginning of February a number of young people across some of our churches have expressed an interest in attending 3Generate.
3Generate is an action-packed and inspiring weekend for hearing the voice of children and young people across the Methodist Church, focussing on fun, faith and friends. To see what happens at the event visit the YouTube channel – 3GenerateTV. Checkout their website https://www.methodist.org.uk/our-work/our-work-in-britain/3generate/
Last year (2018) the Southport Methodist Circuit took 12 young people along to 3Generate and they absolutely loved it! 3Generate 2019 will take place 22-24 November 2019 at Pontins, Southport.
In 2019 the Southport Circuit are, again, looking to take a group of young people to this fantastic and inspiring event. The age range last year was 11 and upward, but his year the Circuit are looking to extend the age range from aged 8.
Although the cost of the event is £120 for the full weekend (includes all events, accommodation and food) we are very thankful and grateful that the Southport Circuit and Liverpool District are to fund the full cost for each young person who wants to attend. (to be confirmed).
Tickets for 3Generate are on sale from 24th April 2019, but they sell out fast!
If you are interested in your young person going to 3Generate please email me firstname.lastname@example.org for expression of interest, or for further information, or to book a ticket!
The Southport Circuit are also looking for leaders who have DBS clearance to stay the weekend with our young people (I have already volunteered). Without the requisite number of leaders we are not allowed to attend. If you can help please let me know as soon as possible.
In 2018, 3Generate welcomed 1,200 children and young people aged 8–23 from all over the country, including Scotland and the Channel Islands. A Manifesto for 2019 has been produced by the children and young people at the event and is available at https://www.methodist.org.uk/our-work/our-work-in-britain/3generate/manifestos-and-resources/
