Basic information

The General Information

The International Convention of Bible Students will be held Aug. 5-9, 2020.

The previous convention was attended by around 1100 participants from 18 countries. We truly hope that continual thirsting for the fellowship of faith exists among the brethren from various countries, and that it will translate into interest in participating in this upcoming international gathering.

We are expecting brethren from Europe, North America, Australia, India, and also Cameroon in Africa.

The Choir Workshop

The gathering of the international choir and instrumental group directed by bro. Tim Krupa from the US is scheduled for July 31 – August 4, 2020. The purpose of this meeting is to glorify the Creator through hymns, as well as through accompaniment performed by multiple instrumentalists.

The international seminar will be taking place concurrently with the choir workshop, so both groups will be able to participate in Bible studies together.

The Study Seminar

The International Seminar led by Bro. Bill and Sr. Shannah Dutka from the US will be held at the same time as the international choir and instrumental group, which is July 31 through August 4, 2020.

Details of the programme of the seminar will be given later.

The Location

We invite the participants of the choir, the seminar and the convention to the same facility as in 2018 – ORLE GNIAZDO (EAGLE’S NEST) Conference and Recreation Center in SZCZYRK near Bielsko-Biala. The advantages associated with its location constituted the decisive factor in regards to the desire to experience the inspiring moments and faith-strengthening emotions in this same place, in peace, quiet and seclusion.

The Center’s address:
ul. Wrzosowa 28 A
43 370 Szczyrk
tel. 48 (33) 81 97 300
www.orle gniazdo.pl

Auditorium

We will open up the adjoining auditoriums of the Orle Gniazdo to create a large main room.  In the rooms located next to the main auditorium, participation will be limited to watching the services via large screens.

Meals

In order to provide meals for the convention’s participants, we are planning to take full advantage of the center’s kitchen. The meals – including vegetarian ones – will be served buffet-style.

Accommodations

The Eagle’s Nest Center previously offered to us over 550 beds. Because of the scheduled modernization of a significant portion of the hotel, this time we will have about half of these beds at our disposal. For this reason, the rooms at the center will primarily be assigned to families with small children, as well as handicapped and elderly brethren. In order to provide everybody with comfortable accommodations, we will take advantage of other hotels and guest houses to a larger extent than previously. The list of facilities, as well as the details of the rooms and their pricing are shown in the registration form.

Their list, as well as the details about their standard and pricing, are included in the registration form.

These facilities will also provide rooms for the handicapped; in some of the buildings there are elevators that will facilitate moving around.

The Study Seminar

We are inviting all who are at least 15 years old and wish to integrate during Bible studies and other activities…

The Choir Workshop

The purpose of this seminar is to glorify and praise the Creator through hymns, as well as through accompaniment performed by multiple instrumentalists.

All these activities will prepare, in the spirit of praise, a performance for the convention and a possible local witnessing effort.
