House of Reconciliation

The House of Reconciliation is a church of the Hungarian Evangelical Fellowship in Budapest, Békásmegyer.

The Fellowship is a free, Evangelical Church based on Methodist principles of faith. It is heir to the Movement initiated by the theologian and pastor John Wesley, organized into an independent Methodist Church at the end of the 18th century. The Fellowship was established in the mid-seventies as a result of the refusal to co-operate with the notorious Office of Church Affairs by a group within the Hungarian Methodist Church, followed by their secession. As a consequence, their churches were impropriated and their ministers were given suspended sentences of imprisonment. After eight years of persecution they were finally recognized by the state on 1 October 1981. The small community, numbering approximately 3000 members, is served country-wide by ten pastors.
