Kirchentag Day 3: Sharing in Ministry

Kirchentag has proved to be an excellent way to share the life and passion of RCH missions and ministries. Representatives from several different areas of the church are present at the festival this week, such as Refugee Mission, Roma Ministry, Deaf Mission and the Eco-Congregation program. One feature of the church's booth is the "living library." These ministry representatives act as living reference material for interested Kirchentag participants who visit the stand. It is a time to go further into current projects or programs, and just generally communicate the church's focus.

Members of Roma Ministry explain the Roma honey project and enjoy some homemade honey with bread.
Young people test their knowledge about Hungary.
Participants are encouraged to enjoy a delicious Hungarian drink and speak with RCH team members.
A visitor learns to sign his name.
The RCH Eco-Congregation project test your ecological footprint.

The booth has a schedule for each day that rotates the ministries at different times each day, so visitors have an opportunity to see them all. In addition, the RCH holds panel discussion each day where church representatives discuss specific ministries or the relative issues surrounding them.

Dóra Nagy-Kanizsai from the Refugee Mission discusses the current situation for refugees in Hungary.

And finally, there is no rest for the weary communication team. On top of designing the beautiful photography and videos utilized for the church's Kirchentag stand and printed materials, they have made two new videos from Hamburg. Check them out!

There is only one more day to visit the RCH booth before the team takes everything down and packs up for the long trip home. Stay tuned for what the last day has in store!
