(04.04.2017) Zurich. The current order of divine services for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day has been in effect since 2011. Now the District Apostles of Europe have passed a resolution on a revision for the European domain. In future, both the closing divine service of the old year and the first divine service of the new year will be conducted on a Sunday.
(01.01.2017) Let us recognise the glory of God in His works, thank Him for His gifts, and proclaim His glory! These are the three tasks for New Apostolic Christians in the coming year.
(21.12.2016) Zurich / Cape Town. John Leslie Kriel (60) is the name of the new District Apostle responsible for the Church in Southern Africa. Besides South Africa, his working area also includes additional countries in the African south, including Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, and a number of others. Meanwhile, District Apostle Noel Barnes enjoyed a festive retirement at the age of 66.
(04.12.2016) Not only in Africa are there plans to merge neighbouring church districts, but also in Germany: specifically, the District Apostle Areas North Rhine-Westphalia and Hesse/Rhineland-Palatinate/Saarland, including the countries in their care. The merger is planned for 2018.
(26.11.2016) Zurich. Switzerland will shortly be taking vital steps for the future: Apostle Jürg Zbinden has been chosen as Helper to assist District Apostle Markus Fehlbaum, who is planning to retire in June 2018.
(13.11.2016) The New Apostolic Church is establishing a new District Church in southern Africa. This was announced by the president of the international church, Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider, this morning in a letter that was read to the congregations in the region.
(01.10.2016) Church members want to understand Church doctrine. The current issue of ‘community’ features clearly understandable teaching texts for just such members. What is divine service? What is forgiveness of sins?—Answers to important questions.
(19.09.2016) Zurich / Indonesia. On Sunday, 18 September 2016, the retired District Apostle Alfons Tansahtikno passed away at the age of 72, after enduring a long illness. From 1985 until his retirement on 18 January 2009, Alfons Tansahtikno had served as a District Apostle in Indonesia.
(04.07.2016) “The communication landscape is rugged. With the different kinds of media, different reading habits, and a wide range of target groups the only way the Church can reach as many members as possible is with a media network.” This is how the Communication Services of the New Apostolic Church see their role. In addition to websites, social media networks, and Apps, the Church also runs a video channel on YouTube and publishes the member magazine community.
(20.06.2016) Hannover/Zurich. Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider conducted the divine service on Sunday, 19 June 2016 in Hannover, where he festively retired District Apostle Wilfried Klingler (67), who had served in ministry for many years. At the same time, he transferred the leadership of the District Churches of Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony, and Thuringia to the care of District Apostle Rüdiger Krause—which has created the largest District Apostle District in Germany.
