3-DAY INTENSIVE – Important Info

15th April 2019

We are really looking forward to welcoming you all to Glasgow at the end of this month for the first of the two 3-Day Intensives that make up such an important part of the Emerging Prophets programme.

In this comprehensive video Sam tells you everything you might need to know about the 3-Day Intensive. Many of you have had questions and we hope that these are all answered (and more) in this film and the links below.

Address

The 3-Day Intensive takes place at Re:Hope Church Glasgow (West End) 37 Stewartville St, Glasgow G11 5PL

For those of you who’ve been to Glasgow Prophetic Centre before it’s a 2 mile, 45 minute walk:

 

Accommodation

Accommodation is not provided as part of the course. Glasgow City Centre has a vast selection of hotels for every budget type.

Travel from the city centre to the venue is short and convenient, with the venue being close to bus routes, a Subway station (Kelvinhall Station) and train stations (Partick Station). For those staying in the city centre, Subway travel is the fastest, which I will explain below.

I’ve listed various hotel options for you to choose from below with some information that should help inform your decision making.

City Centre Hotel Options:

  • Radisson Blu hotel, high-end (currently £355 total for 3 nights). 3 minute walk from St Enoch subway station.
  • The Grand Central Hotel, high-end (currently £243 total for 3 nights). 2 minute walk from St Enoch subway station.
  • Motel One, mid-range hotel (currently £207 total for 3 nights). 2 minute walk from St Enoch subway station.
  • Jury’s Inn, mid-range hotel (currently £185 total for 3 nights). 2 minute walk from St Enoch subway station.
  • Ibis Budget, budget hotel (currently £125 total for 3 nights). 15 minute walk from Kinning Park subway station.
  • Premier Inn, Argyle Street, budget hotel (currently £151 total for 3 nights). 10 minute walk from St Enoch subway station.

I’ve created a specific search for hotels within walking distance of undergrounds within the city centre of Glasgow if you would like to have a further look for yourself. They are ordered in distance from the location.

Local Apartments

For those wishing to stay closer to the venue and not use public transport, some apartments are available to rent for the week. I’ve created a search on Booking.com that displays some options. Some of these apartments have multiple bedrooms which may be a better option if you’re traveling with others. Please feel free to communicate with others in the group as well as some of you may wish to share accommodation and costs. You can post on our shared Facebook group page if you’d like to discuss this option with other members.

You can also check Airbnb for further options if you’d like to pursue the shared accommodation option, which is especially beneficial for larger groups.

Travel

Airports

It’s a privilege to have so many of you fly to join us here in Glasgow. We’re excited to meet our family from all over the world.

The closest airport is Glasgow International (not Glasgow Prestwick) and there is a regular shuttle bus service into the city centre. The Glasgow Airport Express service connects the airport and the city centre in just 15 minutes. From the airport, catch the Airport Express from stance 1. In the city, this service picks-up and drops-off at St Vincent Street (near Central Station), George Square (near Queen Street Station), and close to many popular hotels. You can find out more information on Glasgow Airport’s website by clicking here.

There’s also the option of taking a taxi from the airport directly to your hotel. You can book these via Glasgow Airport’s website or find one outside the airport at the taxi rank.

To the Venue

Subway

Take the underground train to Kelvinhall subway station from your local subway station. Our underground network only has one line, but two circles each which go to the same stations. There are trains every 6-8 minutes, so you won’t have to wait long. You can find timetables and information at SPT.co.uk.

It is a 6 minute walk from Kelvinhall underground to our venue, RE:Hope Westend.

I’ve provided a map below to show you the quickest route.

Train

An alternative is to take the overground train from Glasgow Central (or Anderston, if your hotel is nearer this station) to Partick train station, which is then a 7 minute walk to the venue. Trains are roughly every ten minutes and take 7 minutes to get to Partick.

Bus

If you’re comfortable using our bus service, First Bus’ 2, 3, 7, 8, 19A, 90, 141 and 747 all stop on Dumbarton Road; there are also other services which pass within a longer walk of the church. You can find timetables and information at firstgroup.com

I’ve created a draft search on First Bus’ website to give you an idea of timings and locations for those of you interested in taking the bus.

Schedule

We have a very full schedule, so please familiarise yourself with each day so that you’re ready to start come the 29th of April. You will be given a paper copy of this schedule upon arrival.

Meals

As part of the course, we place a high value on eating together to build relationships. On Monday, we will have a hot evening meal together before session 3. On Tuesday and Wednesday, there will be no dinner but we will provide lunch. Refreshments will be available during scheduled breaks.

We encourage you to take one another out for dinner on Tuesday and connect with those you wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to over a meal. This is a great opportunity to make new life long friendships.

IMPORTANT: If you have any dietary requirements please email events@gpc.org.uk ASAP with details. We will do our utmost to cater to your needs so please do let us know. Due to the quantities of numbers for catering, we need to know of all requirements 7 days before the start date. So please email our events team by 22nd April, thank you.
