PRESENT MINISTRIES

The Free Methodist Church operates in Hungary as the Bread of Life Foundation, and its charter includes both religious and humanitarian activities.

There are currently two church fellowships in Hungary. Péter Tóth is the pastor of the Budapest fellowship. In addition to church ministries, community outreach events and services include English classes, women’s programs, men’s events, preschool programs, and a weekly recovery group. Budapest also serves as the administrative headquarters of the Free Methodist Church in Europe, where missionary Larry Winckles serves as the Europe Area Associate Director. His wife, Katie, is part of the Budapest church leadership team, the mission bookkeeper, and the director of English-language ministries. The Győr fellowship, led by a national leader, Sylvia Nyiri, includes English-language worship services, Bible studies, a university student group, Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) ministry, service to the poor, and ministry to orphans. Missionaries Gerry and Kathy McNamara recently moved from Győr to Pécs to begin church planting in that area. A small church group also began in Veszprém, serving international university students.

 

The Set Free Movement operates in Hungary. Its ministries include:

  • Sensitivity training
  • Ministry to orphans
  • Ministry to convicts.
  • Raising awareness with at-risk populations
  • Networking with like-minded organizations
  • Participation in the European Freedom Network

Set Free teams are working in Budapest, Győr, and Pécs.
