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 IREF’s Sunday service. See also the notices below! If you want to contact us, send an email to irefdelft@gmail.com so that we can reply you in proper way. God bless you!

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

Since September 2016 we have our joint ICF church services – a common responsibility of IREF and Immanuel church (Delft Project)- in the Génestet church, Oude Delft 102 – just 200 meters from the Old Church (south bound). The services start at 12.15.

Sunday 30 April ‘Let it make sense!’, last sermon in the series ‘Christian@work’, rev. Niek Tramper  

Let it make sense! Do you believe that your study/work is meaningful? Difficult, when you experience hardships, set backs and frustrations! How to be sure that it all makes sense in this vast universe? How to be sure that death is not the end of everything? You may search for a meaningful life and a transformed world. But is it real? Get acquainted with moving arguments from one of the letters of the apostle Paul; be welcome in the ICF-service, Sunday 30 April, 12.15 hrs in de Génestetchurch, Oude Delft 102.

We  continue our Sunday services with the name of ICF (International Christian Fellowship) – Delft.

⇒ Andreas course 2017 finished

The Andreascourse finished recently. All together we welcomed 27 participants from many different religious and cultural backgrounds. There are different possibilities for follow up: a Bible study group, a catechism class preparing for baptism, and some time later: a course in Christian discipleship. 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

This summer pastor Niek Tramper finished 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 it contains truth. 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.
