Throughout the Bible it is clear that festivals and celebrations are close to God’s heart.

The Gathering is built on four pillars seen in these biblical festivals; unity, family, music and feasting.

This annual festival invites you, your family and thousands of people from all over the world, to worship and celebrate the goodness of God, in the heart of the winelands; Stellenbosch.
It is an opportunity to express the church’s unity in a lively and diverse manner. Whatever your age, denomination or musical taste, we want you to join us. The festival will be a big carnival with fun activities for young and old; the ideal place to create brand new family memories. Music is the heart of the Gathering. You can expect some of the most current Christian artists and worship leaders from South Africa and around the globe, gracing our two stages. Not only will you’re music tastes be satisfied but also you’re tummy. The Gathering is all about gathering, being together, so let’s do that around food. You’ll be able to buy meals from some of the best and delicious food vendors the Western Cape has to offer. We will also have an exhibition tent of what’s happening in the Christian World. The Gathering will be an experience you and your family will want to experience every year.
