During the past days of the migrant crisis in Budapest, the Member churches and organisations of the Wesley Alliance (UMC Hungary, The Salvation Army, Church of the Nazarene, Free Methodist Church, and OMS International) also strived to support and stand by the needy in Budapest.
The members of our communities visited Budapest-Déli, Keleti and Nyugati Railway Terminals, where they were trying to determine what the situation is like, and what needs people have. The situation is the most severe around the Keleti, which is most often displayed in the media. Thousands of people have gathered here, and during the course of this afternoon, hundreds of people set off to Austria on foot.
«Church planting» was the main theme of this year’s meeting of Hungary Provisional Annual Conference, which took place from April 23 to 26, 2015, in Budakeszi. For the first time the Annual Conference members spent half a day to discuss a specific theme.
In the past 25 years two new churches have been established in the region of Budapest (Óbuda and Budakeszi). Additionally, house groups in Kürtöszpuszta (Roma church), Debrecen, and Sopron have developed into beginnings of local churches. At some other places groups of Methodist churches have started missionary activities, quite often in Roma settlements.
