The Lyons FamilyStrategically located in Traiskirchen, 200 meters down the road form Austria’s largest Refugee Camp, each week 300 or more refugees walk through the Oasis doors and most of these are from Muslim countries. We offer many ministries at the Oasis Centre. Some programs meet their practical needs, such as clothing, language classes and activities for men, women and children. Other ministries are more evangelical in nature, including bible talks, discussion times, viewing of digital Christian media and handing out of bibles and other Christian resources in many languages. As refugees respond to the gospel, we aim to disciple them and connect them with local churches and other believers. We build relationships with refugees who stay long-term in the local and Vienna area.
