WMC: February 2020
In November 20 of us (3 adults and 17 young people) set off from Didcot one Friday afternoon to head to Southport for the annual Methodist Conference for young people.
After a 7-hour journey we finally arrived at Pontins and registered and then found our accommodation and got some much needed sleep! The next two days were jam- packed full of activities which the young people opted into including discussions, football, a climbing wall, worship, talks about topical issues, swimming, mini-golf...It was a joy to accompany the young people (from Wantage and the Circuit) and we are already looking forward to next year!
Here are a few quotes from the young people-
'I really enjoyed 3Generate again this year and it was a very good atmosphere to come together with other young Christians and discuss a range of topics and worship together. I also enjoyed the time when we could all chill, do activities and get to know people better.'
'The 3Generate experience was great with loads of great talks and activity to partake in. My favourite being the story dome where people would tell their stories and how God helped them. The whole weekend was great and I made lots of new friends with similar views'
'I enjoyed 3Generate this year and loved all the different activities that you could do. I especially loved the lively worship and getting to know new people.'
