Closer to the event a communication will be sent from the GPI team to request your arrival time. This is so that representatives from the team can be sent to help navigate the journey from the airport to the hotel, using public transport. The hotel is close by and is easily accessible by public transportation. Alternatively, you can make your own arrangements (e.g. by taxi). Further details on the conference venue please seehttps://www.hotelolsanka.cz.
You can tell us who you'd like to share with when you make your payment. We will do our best to accommodate this but cannot guarantee it. If you don't get to share with the person you know think of it as a good opportunity to make a new friend!

We aim to ensure the event is inclusive and needs are accommodated. As part of the U.K. payment process you will be directed on how to make disclosures of this nature.

The main currency in Prague is the Czech Crown (CZK).
If you are a Christian this conference will give you time to 'get plugged in' deeper to God. If you're new to Christianity then this will offer you a great opportunity to meet new people from across Europe and ask questions about God, faith and church. All are welcome!
