Join Us

We’ll send out a newsletter every week to tell you when and where we’re meeting. It’s our main form of communication, so sign up if you’re interested in joining.

About Us

We are a community of university students and young professionals from many different nationalities and backgrounds who come together in the name of Jesus for worship, prayer, Bible study, and service, as well as to encourage each other.

Come join us for our main meeting which takes place on Friday evenings from 6 PM until 8:30 PM

Why

The Purpose of our Christian Fellowship is to provide a nurturing environment for those who follow Jesus, or seek to know Him. We desire to serve, grow and challenge each other in our growth in love for God, God’s Word, and God’s people. It was recognised that there are many students and other young people in Budapest who would appreciate an English language Christian community. This community is not affiliated to any of the International churches in Budapest but it is a part of the Hungarian Fellowship of Evangelical Christian Students movement (MEKDSZ), which itself is a part of the broader IFES family.

Who

We welcome people of faith from all Christian traditions as well as those who have a desire or interest in wanting to learn more of what being a follower of Jesus Christ is all about. So whether you’re a Catholic from Africa or Slovenia, an Orthodox from Ukraine or Greece, Protestants, Reformed to Charismatic, or anywhere in between. At this fellowship everyone is welcomed.

Where

We usually meet on Friday evenings at 6:00pm at Forum (Szigony u. 16a, 1083 Budapest). If you’d like to join us, please send us an email and we will give you the exact directions. We look forward to meeting you!

Here’s what we’ve been up to most recently: ICFB semester planning (21 Sep 2018)

ICFB semester planning

In case you missed this funFriday, here’s a summary of what we shared, discussed, ideas we came up with, decisions we made, etc.

First we talked a little bit about what ICFB is, and why it’s been so special to so many people.

  • hospitality
  • commitment
  • openness
  • home
  • family
  • love
  • spontaneity
  • fun

We shared our funny stories about pets. Mostly about cats. That fly. Or jump.

Some technical things:

  • we have a Slack chat where we discuss everything, e.g. Friday meetings, retreat organizing. If you want to be there, let us know, and we’ll send you an invite.
  • we also have a Trello board for ideas, organizing. You can join that too!

Meeting place:

We used to have a constant meeting place, but we have decided to meet in our homes instead. It’s more cosy & comfy. If you would like to host ICFB once in a while, you are more than welcome to do so! Let us know!

Starting time:

Our Friday meetings officially start at 6 p.m. We love chatting, but in order to have ample time for the things we planned, we have agreed to be a bit more strict and actually start the worship - Bible study - discussion - prayer part at around 6.30 p.m. So please keep this in mind and try to be punctual. (If, for some reason, you can arrive only later, no worries! Come and join!)

We want to make sure we start every Friday fellowship with prayer, bringing the evening before God. We believe he blesses us. And we want to devote time to prayer in the end, as well. So you are always welcome to bring your prayer requests!

Bible study:

This semester we are going to continue the Apostle Paul series. We had the first part of it a year ago, and this semester comes the second part. There are 7 weeks left, so we are going to have Fridays for other topics as well.

If you would like to take part in ICFB by leading Bible studies, discussions, let us know!

Worship:

If you feel called to lead us in worship, then come and do so!

Or course volunteering doesn’t mean a commitment for every single Friday. If you can do it only once in a while, that’s also good!

Some other random ideas Some other random ideas

Last but definitely not least, we appreciate a lot if you pray for ICFB. For God’s guidance, wisdom, for vision, so that we could be what God wants us to be, going wherever he leads.

THANK YOU:)
