sisters of africa conference 2021

Girls, we cannot wait for what this year will hold as we host our first ever ONLINE Sisters of Africa Conference. Hosted over four days from Wednesday the 15th of September to Saturday the 18th of September, we are getting ready for life-changing ministry, heart-lifting worship and a time with God and his gorgeous girls unlike we’ve ever had before. This year we have tailored our Sisters of Africa Conference to run in the evenings – from 18:30 to 20:30 – of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday as well as a special Saturday morning session that will run from 09:00 to 11:30 to ensure that you wouldn’t need to take time off work to join us.

We’re stirring our hearts as we get ready to receive from Ps Mercy Lokulutu, Ps Sheryl Brady AND Ps Charlotte Gambill, who have all become dear friends to Sisters of Africa, together with our conference host and senior pastor, Ps Wilma Olivier.

All registrations from 2020 will be transferred to 2021, and new registrations are available online. This year, Kids Africa Conference will be absolutely free, running from Thursday to Saturday, so your kids and little ones in your world will have an incredible time learning about God in a fun and relevant way!

Stay tuned in our services and on social media for more info and details, and we will see you all again soon at SOA 2021!
