Request a Visit

In recent years, fellow Christians in Austria have encouraged us to start a community there. After careful consideration, we feel called to respond to this invitation, 400 years after the expulsion of the original Anabaptist communities from Austria.

With the help of many friends from the Catholic Church and free church movement, things have moved forward with unexpected speed. In light of the Anabaptist spiritual heritage shared by the Bruderhof and Mennonite communities worldwide, it is a particular gift that we have found a place in Austria's church landscape through cooperation with the Free Churches in Austria, and especially the Mennonite Free Church in Austria.

The practical aspects are rapidly falling into place, so we started a small community in Retz (in Lower Austria, north of Vienna) in Summer 2019. We are confident that God will show us the next steps in our task in Austria. We look forward to you visiting us!
