Event information

The Venue

Home of the Olympic Winter Games Lillehammer in 1994, the Vikingship is celebrated as a truly fantastic location in Eastern Norway! Today, the Vikingship is Norway's national ice skating facility and one of the main attractions in Hamar.

The Vikingship has the shape and form of an upside down actual viking ship, and we feel the significance to gather in just this building as we believe in a release of the "upside down" / repented vikings of the north to go bless the nations!

Children  

We welcome all ages of the people of God to gather together in the ship for this weekend. During worship we would love for children to be able to dance and play before God, and there will be space for it on the main floor of the venue. If children find it hard to stay calm during talking, there will be some rooms available for playing. The smaller children must be supervised by an adult.

All content will be available in Norwegian and English during the event, either from stage or on earphones that we provide for you.

Continuous prayer and worship

We will have continuous prayer and worship throughout the event, even between main gathering times. This will be in the main hall or in an auditorium with access from the main hall. You will find information about this at the event.
