Due to Government guidance on social distancing around the Coronavirus outbreak and the uncertainty about when large face to face gatherings can restart, it will not be possible for us to hold the 3Generate Children and Youth Assembly at the NEC in 2020. It's been a really difficult decision for us to make, but our primary concern, as always, is for 3Generate to be a safe and enjoyable event. With everything so uncertain at the moment we can't make any promises about what an event would look like, so it's with very heavy hearts that we have made this decision. We are still planning for the 2021 event to take place at the NEC next year.
Although we won't be able to meet in person this year, we have exciting plans for 3Generate 365 which will launch in September 2020. Children and young people from across the Connexion will have the opportunity to gather virtually to explore this year's theme of 2020 Vision and listen to what God is saying to them. 3Generate 365 will provide opportunities for children and young people to pray, listen, notice, discuss and explore how God may want them to be active as disciples in the world.
As lockdown eases we will explore ways that districts and regions can come together that will form a part of the Children and Youth Assembly process. There will be opportunities for local groups to be a part of the planning for 3Generate2021 and we want to engage in different ways with groups, group leaders and 3Generate volunteers building and developing relationships across the Connexion so the voice of 3Generate 365 is heard at the 2021 Conference and also to prepare for 3Generate 2021.
If you would like to register your interest to be involved in 3Generate 365 then you can do so here .
Let's make this an inspirational 3Generate 2020 year together.
