James Eaton-Challinor: August 2019
3Generate is the Children and Youth Assembly of the Methodist Church in Britain. It 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. It is a milestone event in the spiritual lives of many young people.
The event is taking place from 7pm on Friday 22 November until 2pm on Sunday 24 November at Pontins in Southport.
So the question is could you be a volunteer at this?
Volunteer teams consist of 3 main categories:
- Venue/programme teams who work within each of the venues to help children and young people engage with the 3Generate programme.
- Care teams who are focussed on supporting participants and sometimes their leaders.
- Operational teams include customer service roles such as reception and also practical roles such as stewarding and the set-up and take-down volunteers.
There is a team building day for volunteers on Saturday 28th September at Cliff College.
If transport is something that's stopping you then don't worry — Rev James is going so he'd be happy to provide a lift.
We'd like to take a group of young people from the circuit in 2020 so being a volunteer this year is an excellent way to find out more about the event.
