On the weekend of November 24th - 26th, 6 youngsters from Fulwood and 7 from Bamber Bridge descended on Pontins, Southport for '3generate', Methodist Children’s and Youth weekend. The weekend had a packed programme with lots of choices. The youngsters chose from workshops like ‘Reinventing Church’, ‘Funky icons’, ‘A brave new world’, ‘Being the hands that make change happen’ and ‘Messy Science’ to name a few.

There were also opportunities to take part in activities like swimming, go-karting and favourites for our kids, the digital graffiti wall and the photo booth. Later in the evening and ending on the Sunday, we had the opportunity to choose what worship we wanted. Some chose worship led by a Gospel Choir whilst others went for Urban Praise Project which is a fresh style of worship! (loud with a party vibe). Whilst these events happened the leaders had chance to meet others, talk and catch up with old friends. Please do talk to the youngsters about the weekend to find out more of their experiences, and please ask John about the silent disco!!!
