Every four years, World Assembly is hosted by a different national movement. In 2019, SCO South Africa will host World Assembly near Johannesburg, with support from student volunteers, graduates and staff from across the IFES Africa regions.
Host movements and regions always bring their own flavour to World Assembly. 2019 will include testimonies, stories and songs from South Africa and across the African continent. We want to be open to hearing and learning from our hosts as well as being a blessing to them.
Venue for 2019
World Assembly 2019 will take place in a holiday resort near the town of Bela Bela in the Limpopo province. Bela Bela is located north of Johannesburg, around 150km from O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB). The resort is in the midst of the bush surrounded by scenic nature.
World Assembly will take place during the South African winter, with temperatures ranging from 5°C at night to 23°C during the day. We recommend bringing warm clothing.
