Brethren assemblies from Romania belong to an evangelical movement named Brethren, which emerged in the early nineteenth century in Europe. The Brethren churches in Romania were established in 1899 in Bucharest by the visit of an English missionary, Edmund Hamer Broadbent, and by the ministry of a Bible school director, Francis Berney, a member of Brethren assemblies in Switzerland. Swiss missionaries made a substantial contribution in establishing and developing the Brethren churches in Romania. A special contribution was also made by Brethren assemblies from Germany, both by missionaries sent to Romania and by young Christians trained in the German Bible School. Subsequently, Brethren churches have developed through the work of Romanian believers, experiencing their own evolution. Romanian Christians have remained attached to the principles of the Brethren movement worldwide.
