Welcome home

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 on the Lijnbaan on 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.

Participate

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.

Financial support

ICF Rotterdam-Noord is a young intercultural church that in the first years still depends on sponsors who want to help us on our way. In the long term we hope to stand on our own two feet. ICF Rotterdam-Noord is part of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands and registered as ANBI. As a result, gifts to ICF-Noord are tax deductible.
