This international church in Budapest consists of a group of young people who meet every week to share their lives and the Word of God with each other. The first meeting was in January 2003, and since then the church has regular meetings every week. They are also working together with other churches in Budapest, and they believe that the church should be the best place in the world to be. It is not a boring place where you are forced to go every Sunday, but its about a living relationship with God, and that you can meet with brothers and sisters that you love. And this is not just for Sunday, but for every day as well.
