The horrendous cost of a plate of food

It is a crisis of catastrophic proportions, but it is hardly mentioned in the media. Millions of people in South Sudan are threatened by starvation. Aid organisations of the New Apostolic Church are doing their share to help alleviate some of the suffering.

Advent – You get what you give!

Advent spirit and Christmas joy? Unfortunately, this is not the case everywhere. In the time leading up to Christmas conflicts, war, egoism, and bullying do not cease. Reflections on Advent.

Get up!

A mathetria, a female disciple, is mentioned in the New Testament only once. Her appearance on the biblical stage lasts only seven verses, but her fate makes an impact. It is a situation of life and death.

Ministers between church and their families

Ministry and person. This may sometimes pose potential for conflict. The two roles, the one as minister and the one as husband and father, do not always coincide. What does the Chief Apostle say about this?

Christmas signifies: “God is with us!”

December ushers in Advent, Christmas, and the end of the year. These periods determine the contents of our sermons in December. The focus is on admonition, expectation, and joy—also in our divine services.

World Magazine Day: countless publications

Magazines have been around since the eighteenth century. Their precursors were pamphlets or chronicles—printed matter. Today publications also come in digital and online formats and as apps. The New Apostolic Church is doing its share of publishing.

A career that started in a children’s choir

A 17-year old young woman is currently inspiring members of the New Apostolic Church in South Africa with awe. First they picked up the telephone for their sister. Now they are proudly sharing her videos. A success story between church music and pop music.

The Apostle ministry

Perceivable, sensitive and understanding, able to inspire people for the Lord, and willing to serve the congregations. This is what Apostles around the world are like.

District Apostle Meeting kicks off with topics relevant for Africa

The International District Apostle Meeting is in session. This is the first time since the initial resolutions concerning our concept of ministry were communicated. There are still many open questions, but this is not the only interesting subject.
