JOHANNESBURG — Today, there are so many things that create anxiety in people’s lives and courage is essential in dealing with this anxiety and overcoming day-to-day challenges that range from the most basic to the most complex. It is therefore thrilling that Jehovah’s Witnesses will be holding a three -day convention with the theme: “Be Courageous!

This year’s convention will show how we can develop this essential attribute in accordance to what the Bible tells us, apply it practically in our lives and note its benefits in helping us hold a bright outlook for the future. Starting from Friday September 7th - 9th 2018, the Witnesses will be hosting this free event at the FNB Stadium/ Soccer City in Johannesburg in what is expected to be the largest 3- day conference to be held in South Africa. The Soccer City convention will be held simultaneously in 3 languages being English, isiZulu and Sesotho. An estimated 70 000 people are expected to attend.

A few weeks later, on September 28th – 30th 2018, separate sessions in Setswana, Shona, Tsonga, Sepedi, Xhosa, Afrikaans, Portuguese, Chinese (Mandarin) and Italian will be held at the Johannesburg Expo Centre otherwise known as Nasrec.

The other notable convention will be the Sign Language Convention to be held on August 31st –September 2nd 2018 at the Midrand Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Country- View, Midrand.

The Midrand Assembly Hall will also be the venue for the Venda language convention on the weekend of September 7th – September 9th, Chichewa on September 14th- September 16th and French on the weekend of September 21st- September 23rd 2018.
