Zurich. On Tuesday evening, 24 January 2006, the New Apostolic Church will introduce a new chapter in its communication policy: an information evening will be broadcast by satellite to a specially invited audience. The chief apostle and district apostles agreed on this initiative during last October's District Apostles' Meeting in Zurich.
The main content of the evening will be comprised of topics on the doctrine of the New Apostolic Church. In addition to all active and retired ministers, all youth leaders and assistants, as well as teachers of all levels of instruction, will be invited to take part. The transmission will begin at 8:00 PM and will last approximately an hour and a half. It will be broadcast from the church in Uster, Switzerland.
The information evening will first be transmitted throughout Europe and simultaneously translated into the various languages. Shortly thereafter, Chief Apostle Leber will have a video presentation of this information prepared in English for the benefit of the English-speaking world.
This information evening in January of next year is not a divine service. In the past, it was most often only divine services of the New Apostolic Church that were transmitted by satellite. Chief Apostle Leber has signalled that he plans to make use of the New Apostolic Church's polished satellite technology more often for topical information sessions as well. This method aids in the uniform communication of the doctrine, since all individual target groups can thus be reached at the same time.
