Parish to honour women

2018-08-14 06:01

The Apostolic Faith Mission Church is hosting a conference from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 August in 6th Avenue, in celebration of Women’s Month.

“The theme of the conference is ‘Garland of Grace’ and the theme is taken out of the Bible from Proverbs 4:9, which speaks about the Wisdom of God.

“If you embrace it, it will be like a garland of grace,” says Lizette Engelbrecht, organiser of the conference.

Pastors Gerty Abrahams and Dawn Petersen, as well as Maud Coetzee and Olivia Nagan will be the guest speakers. “We are encouraging women to bring a girl child with on Friday 24 August. No accommodation is available as most of the attendees live in and around Retreat and will travel in and out for the duration of the conference. The cost of the conference is R150 per person and includes refreshments and a goody bag,” says Engelbrecht.

This is the church’s only conference for the year. “Each day we have a different theme and we start on Friday at 19:30 with Olivia Nagan who will speak about ‘Beauty Within’. On Saturday morning at 09:00 Pastor Gerty Abrahams from the Sunflower Foundation will speak about ‘Uprooting’ and this session is for adults only. Pastor Dawn Petersen and Maud Coetzee will host the Sunday event and Petersen will speak about ‘Healing Balm’ while Coetzee will speak about ‘Exhortation and Impartation’. We invite everyone to come and enjoy the conference,” Engelbrecht says.
