About Beauty for Ashes
Real women Real lives Real faith
This inter-denominational, faith-based women’s conference has been encouraging women in southern Africa since 1996.
Beauty for Ashes has held a total of 33 conferences (including 2 pre-conferences and 2 writing & blogging conferences) in 21 years. How amazing is that!
From small beginnings, it has grown to be one of the leading women’s conferences in South Africa, bringing out overseas speakers, authors and performing artists of the highest calibre. The aim is always to inspire and encourage women in their faith using ‘real’ women to communicate their faith with humour and grace. It is a great place for ‘seekers’ to come as the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.
Friends, fellowship, food, fun, great music, inspiring speakers and gifts galore make this a really special conference!
We also offer resources, books, a dynamic website with a wonderful blog, and vibrant social media pages.
