400 shouldn't really pose a problem, grain difference between these two films is not really thar significant, especially given that most of the pics would not go beyond 5R.

Depends on how big is the enlargement. For 4R-5R, grain shouldn't be a prob when using Fuji press 800 ( as suggested by Clive).

However, if you use press 800 outdoor, you're going to lose a little bit of contrast. Otherwise, it's an excellent film for indoor/low-light situation.

Bring a bunch of Fuji 200s and 400s. You'd go broke buying so much Press 800, unless it's subsidized. Anyway, there would be some outdoor stuff right? No need to cover everything in 800. If your camera does mid-roll rewind, learn to use it. You can 'change ISO' when you need to.
In any case, 800 is not really fast enough for indoors at night (w/o flash) unless you have fast primes.

i would use 400 and use flash indoors if needed.

I use fuji extra 800 for indoor shoots during my previous church camp.
More of candids shots and develop to 4R + scanning digital to post/email.
Outdoor use another cam with fuji 400. (lazy to do mid-roll rewind)
