In Austria we are in partnership with the iTeams Austria led 'Oasis' ministry which has served refugees and asylum seekers for over 25 years in the town of Traiskirchen, located south of Vienna. 

The Oasis aims to be an international team partnering with churches, both locally and globally, to walk alongside refugees They offer social and practical help in a Christian context, in a ministry center near the main refugee camp in Traiskirchen. 

The focus of the team at the Oasis is to reflect the heart of God to refugees and offer them the hope, life and refuge that can only be found in Jesus. Working with Austrian and ethnic churches in the Vienna area, the team seeks to equip those who come to faith to be able to share Jesus with others, including their own people, both in Austria and in their countries of origin.

Some of the ministry opportunities include: an evening coffee bar, relief ministry (meeting some of the basic needs of refugees), practical assistance (filling out forms, transportation for medical help), emergency assistance, a clothing room, computer cafe and helping maintain the Oasis building. In addition there are evenings where the gospel is explained and the Jesus Film is shown (available in over 40 different languages), distribution of Bibles and Christian literature in the mother tongue of the refugees, children’s, teens' and women’s ministries, personal small-and-large group Bible studies, discipleship relationships, visiting refugees.
