THURSDAY, October 5 to Sunday October 8 is set to be landmark dates for Amanzimtoti as hundreds will gather for a healing conference to learn the ministry of healing, to heal the sick, and also to pray for renewal in the neglected Amanzimtoti CBD.

“We researched and considered several venues for the conference, including schools and churches, and then thought it would be better for Amanzimtoti to host the conference in the CBD, which needs the revitalisation.
“As a church planted in the CBD, we have so many dreams for the CBD, to see a total renewal prospering business, opportunities for tertiary education and so much more,” Pastor Sydney Joelson said.

The public is invited to attend the evening healing services for free. Day attendees will join a healing school to learn and put into practice the ministry of healing. 

“Mornings will be for learning, while every afternoon from Thursday to Saturday 12 teams will go out to the public and practice the ministry. International visitors Katia Adams, whose parents started the church in Iran, will be present, as well as her husband Julian, who originally came from the Cape Flats and has minister internationally as a prophet gift to the body of Christ. 

On Sunday, October 8 three local churches Glenridge@Toti, Life Church and Lions Gate Church will host a combined service at 9am and the public is invited.

“While some people might be hesitant to attend, it is our hope they will and we are praying for any blocks and fears to be removed. We really want to create a safe place. We are staying until the last person has been prayed for,” said Pastor Joelson. 

Worship teams are coming for the evening services and include Clint Erlank on Thursday, Greg Wegerle on Friday and Brandon Roberts on Saturday. Pastor Ryan Matthews, who used to lead Glenridge Church, will also be ministering. Glenridge Church@Toti, is a seed of Glenridge Church International and started as a home cell group in Amanzimtoti four years ago. They later moved to their new premises in the CBD. 
The church is open to anyone and is a multicultural diverse congregation, which includes poor, rich, Zulu, Afrikaans and English and now has 60 adults and 50 children. The church has a prophetic declaration to preach the good news to the poor, follow the Spirit’s leading and heal by binding the broken hearted.
