ICF Rotterdam-Noord is a young intercultural church near the centre of Rotterdam. Every Sunday we come together; we sing, pray, read from the Bible and share our food. You are welcome, whoever you are, wherever you come from and whatever you believe.
ICF-Noord is a church “of all nations, for all nations”. We are happy if it is just as colourful in our church as it is in the Rotterdam city centre on a busy Saturday afternoon. With so much diversity in our church, there is one that unites us: Jesus Christ.
ICF-Noord is not only a church on Sundays. We like to eat together at home or in the park, we meet in ICF Groups, help each other where we can and try to make a positive contribution to the city.
Everyone is welcome at the meetings and activities of ICF Rotterdam-Noord. To be hospitable to everyone, it is important that there are people who are more committed to the community. For those people there is the possibility to become a member. If you want to become a member, you can indicate this to one of the members of the leadership team.
