April 2015 update....
The Apostolic Church in Hungary grew by more than 10% in 2014!
The Apostolic Church is growing in the country with 1000 members across 25 assemblies. Across the nation productive twinning links have been blessed and continue to expand. God is certainly growing the connections.
In Miskolc a shop has recently been opened selling second hand British clothes and many other items. Pastor Jason Pennington from Ebbw Vale Church is supporting this project.
Pastor Josh Cordray from Maidstone also has connections in Hungary. Last August around fifty people were saved during a mission trip to Kiskoros and Kecei. He is planning a further trip this August. Josh is also embarking on a two year training programme in his twinned church in Jaszladany. The first stage of this will take place later this month, when a team will travel to the church for a weekend to deliver training.
Other links include the Eastbourne Church, where Pastor David Cooke has linked with the assembly in Sur and is planning a visit in August this year and the Rhyl Church, where Pastor Haydn Greenow has linked with the Hungarian assembly in Dorog.
God is certainly blessing the UK-Hungary link. Our vision is to see a stronger and bigger Hungarian Apostolic Church. A church which will send missionaries into central and Eastern Europe and be a focal point for leadership training in Europe. An Apostolic beacon in Eastern Europe!
Pastor Nigel Bainbridge manages the UK-Hungary link on behalf of ActionOverseas.
