Evangelical church service from the Memorial Church in Speyer

1st Advent, November 29, 2020, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., Das Erste and SWR television

At the opening of the 62nd “Bread for the World” campaign

Also this year the evangelical aid organization “Bread for the World” calls for actions and donations in the weeks before Christmas under the motto “Give children a future”. 150 million children around the world still have to work instead of going to school. Bread for the World works to ensure that children can learn and are not forced to work. The opening service is led by Cornelia Füllkrug-Weitzel, the president of the aid organization. Church President Christian Schad delivers the sermon. Pupils of the Trifels-Gymnasium under the direction of Meike Porz show their engagement with the problem of child labor in the form of large-format paintings on canvas and inspired by the street-artist Mark Jenkins with life-size figures, for example sleeping on the floor or going to church cleaning. In her speech, Prime Minister Malu Dreyer made it clear why this year’s relief campaign “Give children a future” is important to her. “Power up the door”, one of the most famous Advent songs, is the Advent song motif in the service, designed by Jochen Steuerwald, regional church music director, with Robert Sattelberger on the organ and the Palatinate regional trombone choir under the direction of Christian Syperek.
