Pentecost is the day of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and also the birthday of the church of Christ. Filled with the Holy Spirit, Apostle Peter preached a sermon two thousand years ago whose focus was on the crucified, risen, and ascended Christ. Approximately three thousand people were added to the church that day. Pentecost is therefore also a model for the power of a Spirit-inspired sermon and for the growth of the congregation through the activity of the Apostles.
On Pentecost Sunday, 31 May 2020, Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider, the spiritual leader of the New Apostolic Church, will conduct a divine service in Darmstadt in Germany, which will be transmitted around the world. He will conduct the service in English. The sermon will be interpreted into German at the altar and simultaneously into French, Spanish, Portuguese, and many other languages.

Worldwide online divine service planned for Pentecost
Zurich. “Anyone who can attend a divine service in person on Pentecost Sunday should do so,” was the clear view of Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider. Nevertheless, there are many Church members for whom this will not be possible. It is for their benefit that the Church leader wishes to organise a collective divine service online.
Usually it is only every two years that Pentecost services in the New Apostolic Church are celebrated as global divine services. It is the Church’s publishing house that takes responsibility for these events using its ample technical infrastructure. In many countries, the service is transmitted by satellite, either live or with a time delay. The publishing house has already had many years of experience in this field.
