I had the honor of joining 9, 000 women from all over Cape Town for Colour Conference 2015 which was hosted by Hillsong Church at the Grand West Arena.
Over the past few years I had heard of the Colour Conference but never made a plan to attend. This year however, Stephanie (who had been before) was so determined that I should experience it that she gifted me with a ticket! Blessings on her for that because even though I was super excited for the actual event, I did not fully understand just how much this conference would impact my life.
The COLOUR Conference is much more than an annual event that gathers thousands of women across four major cities and continents. It is an ever growing global movement of everyday women, seeking to create a stance for justice, change and influence.
It is a story of “divine grace” and it’s ability to find its way into the human heart and weave the story of God’s great love into the lives of those seeking a better world.

There were spectacular performances of drama and music and there were lots of fun moments of laughter and entertainment with all the other women, especially when the guys (Pastor Phil and his minions) took over the stage!
It felt as though each speaker that came onstage to teach us from the Word spoke directly into my heart and to what I am currently experiencing in my own personal life with God. Every word was relevant and that’s how I knew that God had meant for me to be there. Even the talk by Ps. Brian, who spoke about MEN to us women, really helped me to understand and encourage my own man. It was a huge blessing and eye-opener!
Immobilizing the Sisterhood
One of the key focuses of the conference is to immobilize us as women to get involved and to become part of the solution for the many humanitarian causes in our local communities and even on a much bigger global scale. There are loads of different causes listed on the website and you can get involved in any of the ongoing campaigns that you feel is closest to your heart.
