IREF – Home

Welcome to IREF Delft               

We are a Christian fellowship of Reformed/Evangelical nature in Delft, The Netherlands. Our teaching is Bible centered, our mission is to preach the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ. We want to bring together people from different cultures and nationalities who want to worship the living God and want to know more about Him. We do this in song, prayer, Bible reading and explanation, and weekly Bible studies and prayer meetings. Every Sunday afternoon at 12.15, you are welcome to attend the Sunday service. If you want to contact us, send an email to so that we can reply you in proper way. God bless you!

 ⇒ IREF/ICF Sunday services in Génestet church, Oude Delft 102

Our joint ICF church services – a common responsibility of IREF and Immanuel church (Delft Project)- take place in the Génestet church, Oude Delft 102 – just 200 meters from the Old Church (south bound). The services start at 12.15.

Sunday 13th of August, preacher: pastor Niek Tramper. Theme: ‘Understanding Grace’ (Acts 15)

Sunday 2oth of August, preacher: pastor Niek Tramper. Theme: ‘Trustworthy Guide’ (Acts 16) We all need reliable guides to find the way in life. How do we discern who is a reliable director and counsellor, trustworthy enough to be a guide for us. Coming Sunday, in the service of ICF-Delft we do further exploration in the book of Acts (chapter 16) and learn more about the guidance of God’s Spirit. We discover why He is trustworthy and how He works. He may use a crisis, but also a positive vision. He may use personal conviction but also a fellowship making decisions together. 

Holy Communion In the service of Sunday 20 August we also celebrate the Holy Communion. All who confess Jesus as their Lord and Savior are wholeheartedly invited to join in this celebration. If you are still searching to know God, and doubt whether you can join the Holy Communion, do not hesitate to come for a personal prayer and blessing after the service instead.

Sunday 27th of August, special service, welcoming new international students. This service will tak replace in Immanuel Church, Schoemakerstraat 1. Theme: ‘The relevance of the gospel in the urban context’ (Acts 17)

⇒ Andreas course 2017 

The Andreascourse 2017 welcomed 27 participants from many different religious and cultural backgrounds. Several participants continued in following a catechism class preparing for baptism. After summer a course in Christian discipleship will start. Andreascourse will return, probably in February 2018. More information about the course can be found in here.

⇒ ‘Time is near’ – the message of the book of Revelation

In 2016 pastor Niek Tramper held a series of sermons on the book of Revelation. How can a book, that has been written roughly 19 centuries ago, help us to understand the times? Only, if we trough the sometimes horrific visions and seemingly bizarre scenes look into the truth that is behind the surface of this world. The book of Revelation focuses on the Lamb, the symbol of Christ, and how he is going to establish his Kingdom in the turbulence of times. Contact pastor Niek through this website if you want to know more about the book of Revelation and how he explained it in his sermons.

⇒ Wait, pray and work for the breakthrough of God’s kingdom 

We continue to wait, pray and work for the breakthrough of God’s Kingdom in a world that is shaken by distress and fear at one hand, and egoistic powerplays and greed at the other hand. At the same time there are so many beautiful testimonies of people and churches who serve in places of need, in refugee camps or in city centers, in places hit by poverty or in the proud world of the university. In the IREF fellowship we continue to pray and work for the people far from home, whether they are afflicted by war and terrorist attacks or they search for success and future in studying in a foreign country. 

 ⇒ Nobody can take our freedom… is that true?

Five years a devastating war rages in Syria, one that has gone far beyond the borders of the country. Islamic State has shown its cruel face to the world. The media confronts us with unceasing suffering of innocent people, not in the last place Christians. Brute fundamentalists, who abuse the name of God kill them, plunder their houses, destroy their churches, rape their wives and daughters…. Click here to read more.
