tender. divine. eternal.
For over 25 years, Colour has gathered leaders and everyday women to an environment that champions “the spirit of womanhood” in an open, honest and trustworthy way.
“Love and Truth meet in the street, Right Living and Whole Living embrace and kiss! Truth sprouts green from the ground, Right Living pours down from the skies! Oh yes! God gives Goodness and Beauty; our land responds with Bounty and Blessing. Right Living strides out before him, and clears a path for his passage”.
Psalm 85:10-13 (The Message)
Hello lovely one,
2020 was certainly one for the history books. I do pray that you have journeyed through it with God’s strength and grace, and that there remains a smile on your face and a smile within your spirit.
As many of you know, we managed to gather in the room last March for “the Sydney 2020 conferences” (Be found in the Irresistible), and then when the world went into sudden and enforced lockdowns, we were miraculously able to gift the “online experience” to all the girls around the world who were suddenly disappointed that their 2020-Colour-weekend had been postponed into the following year.
As you can imagine, the global logistics have been huge for us… but HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS… Colour 2021 is going ahead in a new and innovative online format. I didn’t want to enter 2021 without faith and vision, and my commitment was that regardless of what the global landscape looked like, we would bring the heart of heaven to THE table, and your table.
So, this is simply a friendly reminder of “Invitation”. 2021 marks our 25th year of a Whisper that has brought freedom and hope to thousands of women around the world. My hope is that we can engage this milestone year together — and that with faith and the Spirit of God breathing over every inch of it, we can take this message of love and value further and wider than ever before.
Last March we stood shoulder to shoulder, looked to the future and I penned the following for your Colour 2021 invitation —
I believe a personal and loving Heavenly Father longs to kiss humanity with His goodness; I believe a tender and magnificent Son, longs to draw you near and kiss you with His grace; and I believe, the Holy Spirit longs to lead us into wide open spaces that not only bless you and I, but the world around us.
This COVID-affected year brought what was unexpected, yet amid the uncertainty, a perfect, steadfast and trustworthy God, is still at work. His desire is to refresh and strengthen us again for the road that lies ahead.
I hope you’ll join me in 2021. It will be altogether new, different, innovative, beautiful and inspiring. We are looking at everything with brand new eyes. SAVE THE DATE of 12th & 13th March 2021.
And if you were already pre-registered for “in the room”, thank you. Our conference office would have been in touch via email with the finer details… and if you haven’t yet committed to the journey, it’s as easy as one, two, three.
May the months between now and then be blessed.
With love and affection,
Host and Founder of Colour Conference
Co-Global Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church
Be Found in the Kiss – Tender. Divine. Eternal
In 2021, we are coming directly to you – your home, your city, your nation, your friends, your family – in a new and innovative ONLINE format.
What you will enjoy from the Colour Conference 2021 Online
Worship & the Word
Experience the incredible worship, key speakers and all the fun, light and shade and memorable moments that is Colour Conference.
Friendship & Cause
Experience the unity of friendship and cause. The Colour Conference (and Sisterhood) is an outflow of an honest commitment to the health and well-being of the women in one’s local church, local community, and local planting. It is about inspiring women to genuinely care about one another, the communities they inhabit, and the overall plight of humanity. It’s also about women rising with a healthy and stunning attitude toward church and kingdom cause. It is about feminine expression finding expression. It is about bringing tangible and felt change in areas of need. And it’s about the purity of women, diverse in nature and calling, being united in friendship and cause.
Behind The Scenes
Come ‘behind the scenes’ to Colour Conference. Meet & hear from some of our Hillsong team and our much loved guests.
Live Event & On Demand
Colour Conference will be live 12th & 13th March 2021. Colour will be available to view on demand up until 31st May 2021.
We are creating a conference that will be altogether new, different, innovative, beautiful and inspiring.
How you can watch
Are you keen to gather your girlfriends together? You can host your very own Colour Conference Watch Party (safely… either physically or digitally). Here are a few helpful things to know…
What is a Watch Party?
Where safe to do so and in accordance with the latest Government COVID Safe guidelines in your local area, we encourage you to gather your girls and watch Colour Conference together! You can do this in your living room, church venue, over Zoom, etc.
Do we need to register to attend a Watch Party?
Yes, individual registrations are required to participate in Colour Conference, including watch parties, just like you would if you were gathering in the physical room. As a watch party host, we ask you to communicate this to your girls and to remind them of this on the day. Click HERE to register.
Why do we need to individually register?
An individual registration gives personal access to the live stream platform, PLUS all the exclusive Colour Conference content (such as masterclasses which are only available on demand) until 31st May 2021. This allows plenty of time to absorb it all (especially as we know how much us girls love to chat when we’re together in a room, so we don’t want anyone to miss anything). Our hope is that everyone experiences the full Colour Conference experience.
Are you hosting a Watch Party?
Be sure to tag us on Instagram @coloursisterhood and #ColourWatchParty #ColourConf so we can see you and share the fun you’re having!
A special honour moment
As a Colour Sisterhood, we are all about placing value upon womanhood and love to give honour where honour is due. You might like to consider who you would like to honour in your watch party during conference and make it really special!
Watch Party Look & Feel
We hope you have fun creating and styling your watch party to make it beautiful and inviting, and to make it feel like Colour! The best reference is the invitation (i.e. this website you’re on!) where you can see the colour palette and it might spark some ideas! We have also created a fun Watch Party Pack (including evites, conversation starters, Zoom backgrounds, device wallpapers, social media assets) that is available here.
Can I spread the word about my Watch Party?
Yes absolutely! We trust that you’ll use wisdom and be mindful of the following when communicating:
1. A clear pathway for individual registrations which is colourconference.com.
2. Compliance with latest Government COVID Safe restrictions.
3. Keep it fun, inviting and inclusive!
We love you and are grateful for you! We hope you have a truly wonderful Colour Conference – our most intimate conference yet!

Celebrating 25 years of Colour
The Story So Far
Twenty twenty-one marks the twenty-fifth-year milestone in the Colour story, and celebrates a remarkable journey that has witnessed thousands around the world awaken to a new chapter on the earth regarding womanhood.
It has been my personal honour and pleasure to share this journey with so many of you. I’m mindful that many women have joined the adventure at different points along the way, and that some are only just starting, however I want to take a moment to thank those of you who have walked faithfully with me through the years. Countless lives have been impacted in a positive and life-changing way, and any fruit this message bears is testimony to not only the sheer grace of God, but the influence also of your presence, willingness and labour within its framework.
Therefore the story of Colour belongs to you also. It’s a story that has found its feet, stature and human-touch as God’s Spirit has led us line upon line, precept upon precept and year upon year.
Without doubt we are all alive for such a time as this (Esther 4), so let’s salute a fabulous twenty five years travelled together, and an even more spectacular future before us. In the words of my wise and lovely husband – the best is yet to come… because surely, the Son of God, in all His splendour, goodness and faithfulness waits for us in our future. To Him and Him alone, be the glory.

A continuous invitation
"TELL THEM THERE IS A GOD IN HEAVEN AND A COMPANY OF OTHERS WHO BELIEVE IN THEM.”
THE SISTERHOOD DECLARATION
“I AM SISTERHOOD” is a declaration, a declaration about value and identity, purpose and mission. It is a declaration intentional in reach and embrace. It transcends culture and creed, age and status, prejudice and preference. It is a declaration that positions itself amid awareness and responsibility, concern and care, injustice and solution—a declaration ultimately concerned with the welfare of the world and her inhabitants. It has courageously woven its way through time and history and continues to weave itself across our lives and future.
It is our collective here and now—and it belongs to any feminine soul who somehow believes that she was born for more than what is temporal and fleeting. It’s for women of all ages and backgrounds, of every personality and style, colour and vibrancy. It’s for the bold and bodacious, the demure and unassuming. It’s the Sisterhood that perhaps heaven imagined when a very intentional Creator created His girls. It’s strong and beautiful, feminine and gracious, authoritative and gentle, and above all else, it welcomes the broken, discarded, and forgotten.
Whichever way it is seen or understood, it is a growing movement of women across the earth—a movement of down-to-earth and normal women whose desire is to take what is in their hand and genuinely use it for good—a movement of women united in heart and spirit who believe that together we can make the world a better place.
With love and affection,
Colour Conference 2021 Online
