2020 International Convention of Bible Students Szczyrk, Poland

August 5-9, 2020

It is with saddened hearts, we inform the brethren that the August 5-9, 2020 International Convention of Bible Students in Szczyrk, Poland has been CANCELLED.  This includes the pre-convention choir and study seminars.

The health and safety of the brethren has been of utmost concern under the current pandemic.  The ability to travel, medical facilities, travel insurance, quarantines, as well as prohibits against large group meetings are also of great concern.  We hope, Lord willing, a similar convention may be possible some time in the future.  The joint committees will be discussing options in the coming months.

The convention will be held August 5 through 9, 2020 and begin the evening of Tuesday, August 4 with a performance by the choir camp attendees.  We are expecting brethren from Europe, North America, Australia, India, and Africa.

The main place of our gathering will be Orle Gniazdo (Eagle’s Nest) Conference Center in Szczyrk, Poland, near Bielsko-Biala.  This is the same location as the 2016 and 2018 International Conventions.

The conference center owes this unique, almost Biblical name to its location at the top of one of the highest hills surrounding the town, about one mile from its center.  This spot is far from the city commotion, traffic, distracting billboards, and crowds of tourists.  It was a real blessing for those seeking peace, quiet, and solitude while also providing intimate fellowship focused around God’s Word.  These advantages of the Eagle’s Nest led us to once again select this location for our International Convention for the third time!
