Trust was the theme that brought youth together for the 2015 Youth Assembly of the Reformed Church in Hungary on 17th – 18th April. Youth from all over Hungary gathered in the Synod Building of the RCH for this event.
So far, thousands have visited the Contrast exhibit, organized together by the Reformed Church in Hungary and the police. The multimedia art exhibition is part of the family and youth protection project and can be seen again in Budapest.
At the Konfi+ conference on 24-27 August, youth workers of the Carpathian Basin will discuss the possibilities of calling young adults. Why is it so hard for the Church to address these ages nowadays? We asked Szabolcs Szontágh, the head of the youth office of Reformed Church in Hungary.
According to statistics, there is a diminishing amount of young people involved in the church. The Synod Youth Forum has expressed its intentions to contest this fact. The Forum was held 19-20 April with more than 40 young participants.
With the intention to give young people an opportunity to let their voices be heard in the church, the Synod Office organised a Youth Forum, targeting age groups between 16 and 23. The Forum was designed following an already well-functioning pattern, the Scottish Youth Assembly.
