Lancashire Methodist District


Equipping and resourcing ministry to and with children, young people, families and young adults.

As the Children, Youth and Family Team of the Methodist Church, we work with parents, carers, lay workers, church leaders and others to enable children, young people, young adults and families respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and live out their discipleship in worship and mission. We want to transform lives, churches and communities through and for children, young people and families.

If you are a children's, youth or family worker looking for support, learning and resources then The Well Learning Hub is a great place to start.

For parents, carers or other family members looking for support with faith in the home or intergenerational opportunities, visit our Family or Intergenerational Ministry pages.

For young adults we offer a wide range of opportunities to explore vocation, deepen discipleship, serve God or test a calling - from short-term volunteering or residential events to year-long paid internships.

Last but not least, we have a growing number of exciting resources and opportunities for children and young people.

Please do take some time to explore our pages, there is lots to discover! 

What is 3Generate?


3Generate aims to create an inclusive and diverse space for the prophetic voice of children and young people to emerge and be heard, enabling them to speak courageously, and listen to God and each other. Through the process of 3Generate, children and young people are equipped to become participants in advocacy, change and growth and have an impact in their local Methodist communities. 3Generate calls the Church to listen to, and be in relationship and dialogue with and amongst, children and young people, so that change can happen together as a community.

3Generate Elections

This year’s 3Generate elections take place from 21st November 2020 and will remain open for a whole month. We’re keen that as many children and young people as possible, from across the Methodist Church, are able to participate. They have the opportunity to elect the Youth President for 2021/22 as well as their 3Generate representatives for the coming year.

In order to vote children and young people need to be registered. There are some simple steps to make this happen:

  1. Children and young people aged 8-17 years old can be registered only once by either their group leader or parent/carer.
  2. They need to be registered by 15th November via this link:
  3. Elections open on 21st November for a limited period.
  4. All those aged 18-23 years can register to vote Here

Due to Government guidance on social distancing because of 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. 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  ‘Tune In’ 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. If you are interested in volunteering or engaging a group in 3Generate 365, then please register your interest through the button below:
