Ugandan Church Sets Guinness World Record for Longest Claps

A church in Uganda, Phaneroo Ministries, has achieved a remarkable feat by setting a new Guinness World Record for the longest applause.

In celebration of the church’s ninth anniversary, members of Phaneroo Ministries in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, gathered for a special event known as “Clap For Jesus.” During this extraordinary event, the congregation embarked on a continuous clapping session that lasted for an astounding 3 hours and 16 minutes, all while maintaining an average sound level of 88.5 dB. To qualify for the Guinness World Record, they had to sustain a sound level above 80 dB throughout the entire duration.

A total of 926 participants came together to create this thunderous applause. Guinness World Records issued a statement confirming that they successfully met the required sound level criteria.

Grace Lubega, the leader of the church, explained that the purpose of “Clap For Jesus” was to unite people in a spirit of thanksgiving and celebration. The event was conducted with great enthusiasm, with stewards ensuring that participants continued clapping without any breaks.

This extraordinary achievement was not only witnessed by those present in the hall but also livestreamed to a wider audience. Observers from Uganda’s standards agency and the national basketball governing body closely monitored the event to verify its authenticity.

In accomplishing this remarkable feat, the Ugandan church surpassed the previous record of two hours and five minutes, held by Clark Stevens and The Festival of Awesomeness in the United Kingdom in 2019.

Phaneroo Ministries church’s achievement of setting a new Guinness World Record for the longest applause is a testament to their unity, celebration, and unwavering faith.
