'The most beautiful responsibility'

Report from Böszörményi Street and Kassai Street Campus

I remember looking at my freshly received diploma thinking: now I have full responsibility for my words, for my acts, and for my work as a pastor of the Hungarian Reformed Church. It really scared me. How can I live up to that? Maybe I made a mistake. Maybe God, made a mistake. Maybe I shouldn’t be doing this.

Than the semester started. The students arrived.  They filled the room with laughter. They weren’t as many, as last semester. But they wanted to hear the word of God. They wanted to live their faith. They wanted to be part of a Christian community. They wanted to share their life with God and each other. And I was standing in front of them thinking: this is the most beautiful responsibility ever. ‘ Dóri (Dóra ...

New Outreach Programme

New Outreach Programme

The Mission is PubSible!

uljunk.JPG

A new project started from this September. Once a month we go out into a pub to talk about life's big questions. For example last time the topic was: 'Faith and Science'

 

This mission is an amazing opportunity for those who would not come to a church service because that is too far from them. But enjoy good conversations and have questions.  

May God use this project to reach more and more people!

"I LOVE TO BE HERE!"

Interview with Juliane Kühl

We can now call it a tradition that every other year we have one volunteer from Germany. Our volunteer, who will be helping our pastors and communities, arrived from the harbour of Kiel. To get to know her more read the following interview!

 

" Could you tell us where about in Germany do you live?

I came from the Northern part of the country, 30 minutes away from Kiel in a town clled Lütjenburg. I just graduated from high school this year.

 

Is there anything unique about your hometown?

Oh, I don't really think so...

 

Then I will ask it in an other way: what do you like about Lütjenburg?

The fact that there aren't a lot of people - it is not a village, neither it is a big city. You can buy everything you need, but if you want to go to a bigger city it is ...

Trip to Zagreb

Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, with more then 800.000 citizen in it and a plenty of sights to see!

 

img_0646.jpg

Our congregation visited the city on a joined trip with University Congregations from Budapest, Szeged and Transcarpathia. Here is how a member from our church, Timea Kozma, saw it. Read her travelogue below!

"On the first day, after arriving to our accomodation in the centre of the city, we visited two beautiful parks and the Jelasic Square, which was actually the main square of the old town (lower city). Also visited some museums and the University of Zagreb.

The next day we could explore more of this beautiful miracle on the bank of River Sava- so our walk took place in the Upper part of the city. This upper part of the city consists of two subparts: Kaptol ...

Anna Balajthy
shares her thoughts with you about our weekend away! 

20170915-17_iranytu_tabor_2_new_13.JPG

 

"It is always good to finish off the summer and start the new term with God, especially if we can do it with our friends. For this reason it has become a tradition to have a weekend away in Túrricse where all three church communities gather together in the name of God. On a sleepy Friday morning we departed Debrecen for Túrricse and so began the adventure. As we read through the programme for weekend, we could see that many exciting and entertaining activities were waiting for us. This year there were fifteen workshops to choose from as well as free time for biking, table tennis, football, frisbee or quiet time to reflect on what was being discussed in the morning talk.

Read below for more details:

My dream has always been to help more and more people come to Christ and experience that true meeting with Him, that is why I have decided to plant a new church and be the leader of it. I have passed on my role of being a leading pastor in the University Congregation to Gergő Kovács. I will be working in the North-West part of the city to build up a new community. This new congregation, as we see it, would be for all age groups but keeping in mind that this is actually a congregation, where young adults from the University Church could ...

Updates on our communities' life in 2017

3 months - 3 higlighted events

January 

It was a cold but heartwarming day, especially for those who were at the centre of the city that day. On an event was held to celebrate the beginning of the memorial year for the reformation. And we took the opportunity to represent our church by talking to the people, giving out flyers and making it interactive by asking them to be the part of our church family just for that they as we set up a photobooth for that special reason.

 

It is on our hearts to not just be part of our communities but also to take part on events like this, held by the Reformed Church of Hungary!

Here are some photos we wanted to share!

 

February

GAME NIGHT IN ALL OF OUR COMMUNITIES!!!

Annual Christmas DInner was held at the 8th of December!  

Our pastors and volunteers eagerly peeled, chopped, cooked and baked the food for several days so all 140 people could enjoy a 3-course-meal together that evening. The church hall was filled with joy and laughter and the smell of amazing food!! 

It was also a celebration for Dani and Barbi, as it was the 10th anniversary of him serving at the University Church in Debrecen and Barbi's 6th year.
