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/or 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 12.00, you are welcome to attend IREF’s Sunday service.

⇒ Sunday service on Sunday 21 August – ‘Do we need to prove our existence?’
In the IREF service of Sunday 21 August (Old Church 12 hrs) we continue reading one of the Psalms and we focus on Psalm 139 verse 16 ‘All the days ordained for me were written in your book…’
Children born in refugee camps don’t exist officially if they aren’t registered. Where is the proof that they may exist on this earth? Athletes in the Olympic games have invested years of heavy training in order to ‘prove their existence’.
The poet of Psalm 139 expresses his faith that God knew us already before we came to know ourselves and that He has written our days in a book before we began to exist. This is a great comfort, especially for those who cannot ‘prove’ their existence.
At the end of the service we will have a short commemoration of Noah, son of Nico Hardebol and Diana Necea. He was there for a short time, but he couldn’t see the light of the day because he was born too early.
Welcome to share the joy of being together, to thank God for our life and for everything He has given, learn from his Word and pray for one another and for the world around.
⇒ ‘Time is near’ – the message of the book of Revelation
In the beginning of July 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.
