To ensure the validity of their remarkable achievement, it was imperative for them to sustain an audio intensity surpassing 80 dB throughout the entire duration of their jubilant celebration.


During this event, 926 participants clapped continuously for three hours and 16 minutes. To make it an official Guinness World Record, “they had to remain above 80 dB for the entire duration.” Guinness World Records said in a statement.

Grace Lubega, the leader of the church, explained that the purpose of “Clap For Jesus” was to bring people together in a spirit of thanksgiving and celebration. The event was a lively affair, with stewards ensuring that participants kept clapping without any breaks.

In doing so, the Ugandan church surpassed the previous record of two hours and five minutes, which was held by Clark Stevens and The Festival of Awesomeness in the United Kingdom in 2019.
