The Methodist Church: December 2018
This year's 3Generate, the annual Methodist Children and Youth Assembly took place over the weekend, 23-25 November, when 1,200 young Methodists, aged 8-23, along with youth leaders and volunteers gathered in Southport.
The Youth President Jasmine Yeboah, who was elected at last year's 3Generate said: "My theme for the year is Courageous. Many of the events looked at how young people can be courageous, in challenging themselves and to be agents of change in making a difference to their home churches, their communities and to the issues facing our wider society."
Trey Hall, Director of Evangelism and Growth for the Methodist Church in Britain, attending his first ever 3Generate, said, "This was truly one of the most exciting, integrated, inspiring, deep-diving gatherings of Methodists I've been to. All led by and centred on the full inclusion and participation of young people. I challenge every circuit to bring young people and every District Chair to attend and serve in 2019. I promise that you won't regret it!"
