3Generate 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. To see what happens visit our YouTube channel – 3GenerateTV
The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission. In response to this, each year a 3Generate manifesto is produced, based on the conversations that took place and expressing the views, concerns and aspirations of the children and young people who attended.
The 2019 manifesto, created from feedback gathered across all the venues and age streams at 3Generate 2018, can be downloaded here manifesto-a4-2019
Other youth activities are available nearby in the Sprowston area…
For example, the Sprowton Youth Cafe for 13 to 18 years, supported by SYEP, at St Cuthberts Church Centre (near the roundabout): every Tuesday evening, 7pm till 9pm.
Since 1949, when the 4th Norwich was formed, there has been an opportunity for boys and young men to meet on a Wednesday evening with the Boys’ Brigade at Wroxham Road Methodist Church. The Boys’ Brigade is a Uniformed Christian Youth Organisation which was formed way back in 1883, but is still relevant and as needed in our modern times.
At the 4th we encourage any boy at any age to join us in fun and fellowship through a wide ranging programme of informal education to promote the “object” of the BB and to build lifelong skills and make lifelong friends.
The BB Object
“The advancement of Christ’s kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness.”
We meet every Wednesday evening (during School term time) from 6:15pm to 7:30pm for the Anchor Section (5-8 years) and Junior Section (8-11 years) boys, and 7pm through to 8:30pm for the older Company/Sections.
All our staff are volunteers and are appointed by the Church Council and have clear DBS disclosure, many of whom have been members of the organisation through their childhood!

For more information about the 4th should you wish to join please contact our current Captain, Mr S Butterfield by calling 01603 405544 or Mrs Jackie Lawrence on 01603 427560.

“This is not church for children. It’s church for church. It’s church for everyone… I want to encourage you to never be bound by the way we’ve always done it… it’s a circle of all ages meeting together to engage in who God is in a way that works for them.” Archbishop Justin Welby
