We are working in partnership with the Reformed Church of Hungary in the villages of Amati and Hirip, Romania, to help the elderly in these villages. The elderly in Romania have little or no money to pay for medicines, fuel or at times food. They rely very much on their small holdings, which many of them still work.
In August 2016, elders Jon Herd and Sandy Brown, visited both parishes and met with their Pastor, Sandor Zlost Kereszturi, his family, elders of the church and some of the villagers.
We have been raising money through the sale of books on a Sunday after church, having Praise Nights and some of the Junior Church and adults went Carol Singing at Tesco just before Christmas.
We sent £600 to the churches just before Christmas and this allowed the young people from both churches to buy food, which they made up into parcels and delivered to 100 elderly villagers and poorer families in the villages. As they delivered the parcels the young people sang carols as is their tradition in the Reformed Church. (Pictures below).
