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.

 ⇒ 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.

On Sunday 26  Februari 2017 the theme of the sermon is: ‘Why should we pray?’. The preacher is pastor Niek Tramper. We focus on the gospel of Luke, chapter 11 verses 1-13.

Why should we pray? If we believe that God knows everything already, why do we need words to satisfy him? Or to get him moved into our situation? Doesn’t prayer seem weak, meaningless and a waste of time? Jesus showed that prayer is an expression of a confident relationship with the living God. He teaches us that bold, confident prayer is one of the most powerful and fruitful acts in life. Welcome to learn more about it in the ICF-Delft-service, 12 hrs 15, Génestetchurch, Oude Delft 102. 

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

⇒ ‘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.
