Jehovah’s Witnesses are inviting the public to attend a three-day convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The convention’s theme is, “Don’t Give Up!” and this year’s convention will discuss how people can enjoy a happy life now and keep a bright outlook for the future.

The convention is set to begin on August 18.

Jehovah’s Witnesses in Gauteng, with many from Germiston, will be hosting these free events at the Johannesburg Expo Centre.

Conventions will be held in other languages later in the year.

An estimated 75 000 delegates are expected to attend.

Jehovah’s Witnesses in South Africa are organising 58 conventions, in 17 languages, in 20 cities and towns.

Worldwide, there are over 8.34-million active Jehovah’s Witnesses in more than 119 000 congregations.

There is no admission fee and no collection will be taken.

Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
