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!

Taste and see that God is good. In the services of 12 November and 17 December we also celebrate the Holy Communion. The Holy Communion is a special celebration of what Jesus did for us. In HC we receive a piece of bred and a tiny cup of wine as signs of his broken body and shed blood. All who confess Him as their Saviour and Lord are very welcome to partake. If you are still unsure or searches to know God, you may let it pass, but we warmly invite you to ask for a personal prayer after the service.

⇒ Theme sermons about relationships 

In the sermons on the life of Joseph we will focus often at relational issues. They are interchanged with special theme sermons on ‘Relationships in the light of the Gospel’. In these sermons we deal with family relationships, friendships, marriage and education, but also being a single. Theme sermons are planned on 24 Sept. ‘Love relationships’; 29 Oct (‘Being a single’); 5 Nov (‘Family relationships and education’); 24 Dec. (‘Relationships in study and work’).

⇒ 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. Andreascourse will return, probably in February 2018. More information about the content of the course can be found in here.

⇒ 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.
