Marana Tha

In 1980 we had a dream, a Christian community, yet this dream had been inconceivable due to the regime. However, we believed that one day we would be able to confess our faith and do open events in public. The MaranaTha community was established more than 35 years ago. It is a community of children, young and adults who live out their authentic and vivid christianity and hand it over to others. It is a place of gatherings, prayers and worship, formation and evangelization.

The activities we have done up to the present time:

  • Marital courses – 2 090 couples
    (we gave rise to the courses in different parts of Slovakia)
  • Parenting courses: 318 participants,
  • Summer camps for children and families – 2 500 participants
  • Child clubs – more than 8 100 children
  • Youth Friday gatherings – more than 14 000 young people
  • Alfa courses: 1 467 participants
  • Biblical courses – 1 500 participants
  • Men ́s conferences – 1 760 participants
  • Women’s conferences –  2 400 participants
  • Fire Rally – more than 72 000 participants
  • Praise and Worship – more than 45 500 participants

We desire

to create a place of encouragement, restoration and healing where everybody can discover a new hope. We would like to develop our talents, spread the Word of God and be witnesses to God’s love. We dream about such place! We see that God cares and thus we are ready to begin with its realization.

Why a building?

A personal relation with God is prior to us, it motivates us to go beyond our comfort, to use our talents and available resources and help to create a place for everyone in order to experience the goodness of our God. We miss such a home place. For years, we have been using foreign buildings for which we have been paying high fees. Our community is one of the largest in Slovakia with a rich past and we would like to use our full potential to serve others. 

For with God nothing will be impossible. (Lk 1:37)

The prayer – evangelisation meeting which has been organised for 10 years and which expresses a great desire for God.


We help young people to be useful for other people and for society by finding the true meaning of life.

Men´s meetings

We help men to find their true meaning of life and power of virility and thus to achieve the main aim – to tenderly take care of own family.

Child´s ministry

We are preparing activities for children and families where they can have fun, talk to each other and share their experiences.

Beauty of woman

Annual spiritual renewal where women find spiritual reinforcement and healing so that they can bring life, love and home.

Parenting courses

These courses help parents to choose the right steps in rising children. You are taught how to cope with difficulties and how to bring joy into the relationships.

Dance with prayer

Dance is not just a physical activity for us but we also treat it as a form of common prayer.

Community day

Marana Tha, as the community belonging to children, youth, nuns, priests and older people leads to a prayer and a mutual respect.
