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 irefdelft@gmail.com so that we can reply you in proper way. God bless you!

⇒ Short series of sermons about the Gospel and the World Religions

In the course of April we had a short series of sermons about the Gospel and the World religions. We dealt with important topics like the need of salvation, conversion and doing good works relating a Christian perspective to a perspective in one of the main world religions (Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism). Against the background of the main teaching and practice of these religions (and actual forms of therapies and actions derived from it, we explained the core of the Gospel. Why do we need the work of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit in a pluralist and multi-religious society? Please contact us, if you want to know more about this theme.

⇒ Follow up Andreas course 2018: ‘Follow Me’ (short course of those who want to explore more about Christian faith, including baptism)

After the Andreascourse that finished in the beginning of May, we started a follow up course of those who are interested to explore Christian faith further and might consider preparing for baptism.

⇒ 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/ICF-Delft 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.
