Room, Board and Travel

The hotel costs, transportation to/from the airport and meals will be covered by EuNC for the duration of the meetings to which you are invited. If you wish to come earlier or stay longer, that is possible, but at your own expense. Please indicate the additional days on the registration form and we will bill you for that separately.

We have reserved rooms at the Hotel Sirius in Pristina (http://www.hotelsirius.net/En/). You should not contact the hotel directly as this is being handled by us through your registration form. Meals will be provided during the meeting by the college. Please indicate on the registration form if you have any special dietary requirements or room needs.

Expenses for your travel to and from Pristina need to be worked out with your local Learning Centre, your district or your field.

Visa

If you require a visa to enter Kosova, please indicate this on the registration form. You probably have been contacted by us already; nevertheless, check the appropriate box so that we can make sure the necessary invitation has been issued. The Albania-Kosova Learning Centre will be working with you to help in the process of securing this.

Language

The meetings will be conducted in English. If translation is needed, please organize that by Learning Centre and/or field.

Speaker for Faculty Assembly

  Rev. Dr. Deirdre Brower Latz is principal and senior lecturer in pastoral and social theology at Nazarene Theological College, Manchester (United Kingdom). She pastored churches in Urban Bristol and Manchester serving in both settings in co-vocational roles. Her studies and practice combine to make her increasingly passionate about the churches’ engagement with poverty as an issue of justice and faith. Deirdre is an excellent speaker and writes at the popular level for Preachers’ Magazine, Holiness Today and has chapters published in a range of books. She loves thinking alongside others and engaging with poverty and deepening our call to be fully Christ-like in relation to others.

Wednesday Afternoon Sightseeing

On Wednesday afternoon there are no seminars planned. We want to give some time to relax and spend time with colleagues you don’t see often and suggest the following options for you to spend that afternoon:

  1. Bus trip to Gracanica Monastery in nearby Gracanica and Roman site in Ulpiana. This will take about 3 hours in total. This involves a total cost of 15,00 €.
  2. Since the hotel is located in the city centre of Pristina, you could spend the afternoon in Pristina on your own or stay at the hotel.

NOTE: Please, indicate on the registration form which option you prefer so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

We will be back for the evening meal at the hotel.
