In the midst of shaking, come and hear from some of the boldest, most uncompromising prophetic voices...


The shaking continues across the world! As violent wars rage, people groups are displaced, and injustice, unrighteousness, and immorality continues to ravage the earth, it is easy to become discouraged. Nations stumble from one crisis to another – pandemics, global warming, financial crashes, energy shortages – and the vacuum of good spiritual and secular leadership has been exposed.

It’s so easy to view our surroundings through the eyes of man and to despair and lose hope. But an Ezekiel 1 movement of seer prophets is arising and choosing to live differently, in step with what the Holy Spirit is doing, not what our news headlines are telling us. A “peculiar” warrior people is needed to survive in this season, who walk by spiritual sight, in step with the rhythms of God.



the venue

Start The Year Right 2023 will be held in the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.

Located off the M8, the Hilton hotel sits on the edge of Glasgow’s City Centre. The West End, the SEC, and OVO Hydro are within a one-mile radius. The hotel is only 20 minutes from Glasgow Airport. The event is in the ballroom on floor 3, with an exhibition area in the foyer. There is a lift giving access from the car park. 


Can I pay later/ spread payments?

Yes, when you ‘Checkout’ to pay your ticket and complete you details you will be given the option to spread your payment across three equal interest-free payments by using the PayPal payment option.

Are there any Covid-19 restrictions?

All Covid-19 restrictions in Scotland/the UK have been lifted, including the wearing of masks. There are no restrictions on travel or entry into the UK. You should check your own country’s re-entry requirements for your return journey (for example, as of June 2022, a test is required before travelling to the USA). As with all all foreign travel you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance.

In the very unlikely event of a resumption of any Covid-19 restrictions that might lead to the cancellation of this conference we will fully refund all tickets, or offer a free transfer to a rescheduled event.

Are children welcome?

Children of all ages are welcome, but please note that our conferences involve long sessions and so they should be of a maturity to be able to sit without disturbing other registered guests.

Please note that we do NOT have a separate children’s programme or childcare facilities. 

You can purchase tickets for under 18’s and under 12’s. 

Can I get a prophetic word at the conference?

Because of the large number of attendees and the busy nature of the event our ministry teams will not be able to offer personal ministry, Prophetic Check-Ups or Miracle Clinic appointments. However, you will all hear from God during this conference!

Will there be merchandise to buy?

Yes! The GPA shop will be open throughout the conference, with new and exclusive merch, books and other gifts.

Why do you charge for registration?

Most of our broadcasts, services and ministry are completely free to watch and attend. We are a charity and, as such, do not run to make a profit but instead to benefit the public through the advancement of the Christian faith. Very special events, like this one, cost tens of thousands to host – from event hire and equipment costs, to speaker travel and staffing. We put these on to encourage the wider church family and to demonstrate that the worship of Jesus Christ is worth the sacrifice. The decision to have this conference at the Hilton Ballroom, which is expensive to hire, was taken so that many hundreds more people could be part of the event. We have to charge registration prices that are higher than usual in order to cover some of our costs. Even still, we believe that these prices are no higher than what we would all pay for similar events/hobbies/entertainment and/or education in the ‘secular’ world and represent good value for money.

We have introduced a higher priced ‘pay it forward’ ticket which allows generous patrons to ‘sponsor’ a discount on tickets for those who are less able to pay towards the full price of the event. We also continue to provide large discounts for young people, the future of the church.

You can spread your payments over a few months by choosing the PayPal option at checkout.

Where can we eat?

Unfortunately meals are not provided and there are no coffee facilities on site. Tea and Coffee will be served free of charge on the Saturday only. You can bring your own food and drink into the Hilton ballroom.

There will be adequate breaks to allow you to travel to local cafes, restaurants and fast food outlets. We recommend you go back into the city centre for the wide range of choices that are available.

Is there car parking?

There is a car park at the Hilton Hotel that is £15 per day (£3 an hour). There are limited spaces. We recommend public transport as much as possible.

 Q-Park Waterloo Street opens at 6.30am and closes at 11.00pm. 99 Waterloo Street Glasgow G2 6HS. For the Sunday (or Saturday daytime) Cadogan Street Parking is closest but is closed in the evening.

Charing Cross Station parking is a similar distance to the Q-Park. Alternatively, you can park near Central Station and get the train to Anderston.

For Disabled parking: the Hilton hotel has 6 disabled parking spaces available in the underground car parking. This is on a first come, first serve basis. However, this is not free for blue badges, as it is private property.

Where should I fly to?

Although Glasgow is served by Glasgow International Airport (GLA) there are also options for the international flyer at Edinburgh Airport (EDI) just an hour from Glasgow.
