The UMC in Hungary is a mission-oriented church, but its activities are limited by the finances and lack of necessary facilities. It is due partly to the minority status of the church and also to the economic conditions in the country. The communist times preceding the 1990-ies restricted the activities of the church much. It was not allowed to build churches and even today we do not have the suitable facilities for the life of the church in many places. In spite of these difficulties, the social activities of the church far exceeded its size and capacities. We reach out to those in need, the poor, including the disadvantageous minority of the Roma; we maintain five Roma congregations; work with children and youth; we have two homes for the elderly and also maintain a secondary school in Budapest.
It is though the help of volunteers that Strengthens the mission and social activities in the UMC in Hungary.
