2024 Alabaster Worshippers Convention

DATE: 22-23 NOVEMBER 2024

Theme: DWELLING PLACE

We so delighted to announce that Alabaster Worship Convention (AWC23) is happening!

The theme for AWC23 is Dwelling Place Psalms 84:1-12 ‘How lovely is your dwelling place , O’ Lord Almighty!’. Blessed are those who DWELL in Your house; they are ever praising you. 10 ‘Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere’.

We are so excited to hold the convention in person and to have the opportunity to fellowship, conn@ct and soak in God’s presence.  Alabaster Worshippers Convention provides a platform for worshippers from across denominations to can come together on the same platform to be refreshed and renewed with ONE AGENDA to lift up the name of Jesus.

Pause for thought…

What’s been the biggest shift for you as an individual, as a team or as a ministry in your worship leading 2 yrs post-pandemic? How adaptable are the systems and structures within your worship team/ministry? Do you seek growth in your individual gift and ministry? Are you feeling discouraged, disconnected, stagnant, stuck? Do you desire deep intimacy, a time to REFRESH and RENEW in God’s presence?

It is our mission as Alabaster Worship to teach, train and empower Worship Leaders and Worship Teams to pivot and adapt to the ever changing climate. The convention provides a safe place to sharpen and be sharpened by sharing experiences and wisdom. The convention provides a refreshing opportunity for worshippers, musicians, technicians and all serving in the worship ministry to be empowered to develop individually, in the practical, spiritual and theological aspects of worship. It’s a safe space for worship teams to come together to reflect and share experiences, our focus is to support with building dynamic and effective worship teams.

We are getting ready to welcome you and your worship teams this year!
