The Conference

Colour. Colour is a global women’s conference, currently hosted in Sydney, London, Cape Town, New York City, Los Angeles and Kiev (Ukraine), by Bobbie Houston and the global team of Hillsong Church. Attended by thousands of women annually, the mandate for the past 23 years has been to place value upon everyday women of all ages, background and culture.

As a movement, the Colour Sisterhood ripple effect has inspired women around the world to rise up, champion womanhood in all its magnificence and partner together in advocating for justice and change.

The Colour experience is always full of fun, life and creativity – with a strong humanitarian mandate towards the issues that face women around the world. Its appeal is far-reaching and it has proven a perfect and inspiring getaway for girls from all walks of life.
