Church and Society

Mission to the People

Mission is a priority task in the life of the RCH. Through active mission, our church reaches out to every needy group in Hungarian society.



The diaconal service aims to reach people in need and motivate Reformed congregations to "Carry each other's burdens." (Gal. 6:2)



The RCH fulfills its mission through maintaining certain institutions that serve not only their local communities, but people nationwide.
