Mit bescheidenerem Format als vor zwei Jahren ist die ungarische reformierte Gemeinschaft doch als Mitwirkende beim Kirchentag in Stuttgart dabei. Als Ehrengast wirkt Bischof Sándor Zán Fábián der Reformierten Kirche in Transkarpatien/Ukraine an Gottesdiensten und Rundtischgesprächen mit. Die UNI-Gemeinde aus Debrecen leistet diesmal die richtige Mitwirkung in Form einer interaktiven Ausstellung.
