We have several regional and global conferences and gatherings throughout the year – opportunities for our church family and friends to get together.
convergence global conference
Convergence is our annual global conference, a long weekend in October where the whole church family gathers in Stellenbosch for a time of worship, refreshing, fellowship and vision sharing.
Past speakers and worship leaders have included Jeremy Riddle, Jason Upton, Bayless Conley and Dr Corné Bekker, as well as Hettie and Louis Brittz, Dr Vinay Samuel and Rick Rusaw. Parallel to the main conference we run the Children’s Conference, an adventurous journey where we equip the next generation to live passionately for Jesus Christ, and develop them to pursue their purpose in the Kingdom of God.

awaken women’s conference
In 2011 we hosted our women’s conference, Awaken, for the first time, with the gathering now taking place annually in Stellenbosch, Johannesburg and Swakopmund, Namibia. We believe that through Awaken, God has called us to set the table so that He can minister to His daughters.
Women are living expressions of Christ’s love each one has an irreplaceable part to play in His plan, but we need to be fully awake, to Him, to each other and to the world around us.

At the beginning of every year, the men of our church gather for the Men’s Camp, near Wolseley in the Western Cape. The camp is an opportunity for men to spend time together, as friends and family.
With boys joining from the age of eight, it’s a true multi-generational gathering that leaves plenty of time for braaing, swimming, impromptu football and rugby games and hanging out. The sessions, which take place in a large tent, include worship, testimonies, time for prayer and inspiring speakers. For more info about the camp, visit the website.
Amplified Live is an awesome evening of praise and worship for youth and students which takes place once a year, together with our global conference. Expect crazy fun, praise and worship, creative items, teaching from our team and hang-time with friends, as well as food, resources and great merchandise! Find out more on the website and Facebook.
planted regional conference
Planted is the regional conference for our churches in the northern part of South Africa. Hosted in Pretoria, it’s an opportunity for the family to get together for fellowship, spiritual impact and equipping.
It’s a time of celebration of the local church, with a focus on the development of practical skills and dynamic worship, as well as enjoying each other’s company! Contact Shofar Pretoria for more info about Planted.
ablaze regional conference
Ablaze is a regional conference for Namibian churches, hosted by Shofar Windhoek. It’s a weekend set aside for the church of Namibia to come together in unity, to praise the living God and to grow together in His likeness.
The vision for Ablaze comes from James 3:5, “How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!” Although the church of Namibia is still small and contributions may seem insignificant, it has the potential to set the country, and the continent, ablaze for God.
