Park clean ups, visiting the elderly, sharing sweets, charity runs, walking dogs that are living in shelters - just a few of the options among the programs of the Bridge of Love Reformed Volunteering Day organized in the Carpathian Basin. The aim of the event that is organized for the 10th time is to show that the Reformed people can work together and help others. We asked Réka Kőrösi-Gilicze the head of Communications of the Hungarian Reformed Church Aid (HRCA) about the details of the program.

To Give a Year of Your Life

The time that young people spend in European countries or in Hungarian communities beyond Hungarian borders transforms them. With their experience not just the young people but their congregations and even the whole Reformed Church is enriched. Twenty years ago the Diaconal Year program started with eleven people in Hungary, and now there are 1300 young people taking part. We asked Rev. Emese Závodi, the program coordinator and a reformed pastor about the details.
