- Young People – Attendance Age
The conference is open to young people aged 13 to 19. There will be two meetings based on age. The younger group will be for young people between the ages of 13 and 15 and the older group will be for young people aged 16 to 19.
- Shepherding Serving Ones
There is a need for shepherds to care for the young people. Any brother or sister 23 years old or older who has a burden to help can apply to attend. It would also be helpful to contact your country coordinator to have some fellowship about the time. Some experience of serving with young people is preferred but not necessary. There needs to be one shepherding serving one for every three young people.
Young people aged 20 to 22 who wish to help strengthen and support the conference, either serving with the young people or in a practical way, can also apply. These applications are not automatically accepted, but are considered according to the need. Your country coordinator will let you know if you have been accepted.
- Parents and Children’s Conference
A conference for parents and children is held concurrently with the young people’s conference. The purpose of this time is for the parents to get into the fellowship regarding raising up the next generation for the church life, and for the children to be with other children from all over Europe.
Children aged 4-12 may attend the children’s conference if registering with parents/guardians. Space will also be provided where parents can care for children who are younger than 4. Please visit Parents and Children’s Conference announcement page for more information.
If you do not meet age criteria or cannot be involved in any of the above mentioned conferences full-time, you can register as a visitor and choose the meetings you would like to participate in, your meals, accommodation, outlines, t-shirts as it suits your need.
- Practical Service
There is also a great need for brothers and sisters to serve in the many activities which are carried out during the course of the conference. It would be wonderful for a good number of parents (especially dads) and visitors to come to serve in this capacity. No prior experience of serving with young people is required, although the ability to coordinate with others is necessary.

For information which is specific to your country, such as travel arrangements or payment procedures, please contact your country coordinator. If relevant, please see Additional information for the UK or Additional Information for North America.
- Flight Arrivals and Departures
We encourage those who fly to arrive and depart from Krakow airport. Alternatively, there are two other airports: Katowice and Rzeszów airports, which are an additional two and half hours away. Please note that the conference can only provide transport from the alternative airports for groups of over twenty, and the price may vary.
If you are flying, please plan to arrive in Krakow no later than 14:00 on Lord’s day, 28th July and to schedule your departure from Krakow no earlier than 17:00 on Saturday, 3rd August. Anyone arriving in Krakow after 14:00 may need to make their own arrangements to get from the airport to Małe Ciche. Similarly, for flights leaving from Krakow before 17:00 private arrangements may need to be made to get to the airport.
- Preparation for the conference
We request serving ones and helpers from each region have fellowship together prior to the conference to pray for the conference and prepare by watching the training video and read through the outline and guidelines before the conference together.
It is our desire that the Lord would have a way to reach each young person attending this conference, that each young person’s love for the Lord would grow and that they would consecrate themselves in a deeper and more thorough way in this conference. This requires the prayers of all the churches. We therefore ask all the churches to stand with us in prayer as we prepare for this conference and during the conference that the Word of the Lord would be prevailing.
