Gypsies don’t have a unified religion. They generally adopt the dominant religion of their location, hence all the types of Roma living in Hungary, for example in Bulgaria both Christians and Muslims can be found.
In Hungary, Roma communities have been an inseparable part of society for centuries and in the life of churches, service among Roma has always primarily meant spreading the Gospel. Interview with Attila Landauer, national coordinator of Roma ministry of the RCH.
It is fitting that the RCH's Roma Council is meeting to debate its Roma Concept today, 8 April, because it coincides with the International Roma Day. It is a day to celebrate Roma culture but also draw attention to continued discrimination that the Roma community faces.
Partnership is an invaluable asset for today’s global church, but it is also a broad term that encompasses many different forms of agreement and cooperation. Never is this more evident than the partnership between the Reformed Church in Hungary and Global Ministries in the USA.
The new Country Program of HEKS starts the 1st of January 2021. One of the primary goals is to encourage the RCH’s congregations to be more open towards roma communities and to support ministries among roma families, children and youth.
Over the past three and a half years, Ágnes Nyeső has become the face of the National Roma Ministry of RCH as its mission coordinator, but now she takes on a new role as school chaplain at three institutions.
It is an exciting time for the Reformed Church in Hungary and the Swiss Interchurch Aid. On Thursday, the two organizations took another step together strengthening their partnership with an agreement that focuses on Roma ministry in Hungary.
