Women’s Ministry

ICF aims to encourage and equip women to mature spiritually while living out a servant lifestyle. We offer a wide range of programs that allow women to grow in their spiritual walk as well as connect and fellowship with other women, including Grapevine Bible Studies (morning and evening) , Toddlers at ICF and Encouragement Evenings. In addition, we have a variety of special events through out the year.


    I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

    John 15:5

    Grapevine is our ministry program for abiding in Christ through the study of His Word. It is a weekly gathering place for women of all ages and backgrounds to come together to grow in their faith and knowledge of God so that they can live out His truths in their daily lives.

    We offer two sessions of Grapevine at ICF: Grapevine Mornings and Grapevine at Night.

    Grapevine Mornings

    We wish to get to know Jesus better, through his Word, the Bible.  Join us for a time of study and joint discipleship.  Thursdays 09:15 – 11.30. There are 3 English speaking groups and 1 German speaking group. Childcare is available. Coffee/snack time will be from 09:00hrs-09:30hrs. 

    Grapevine at Night

    “Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.” Hebrews 5:13-14

    Grapevine at Night is a Bible study for women of all ages and backgrounds. Together the women study scripture for in-depth knowledge of God’s message and seek to discern God’s truth for their daily lives.

    Every Thursday 19:00-20:30

    Discipleship groups

    Women’s groups of 3-4 gathering regularly for deeper connections through prayer, bible-study and mutual encouragement.

    • Women’s D-groups
      If you would like to connect to other women in these smaller discipleship groups we encourage you to begin by asking who are the women the Lord has placed in your life at this season, who you could walk with together? Our women’s leader Carol or Pastor would then equip you to start and lead one of these groups. If, and only if, you cannot think of anyone to do this with, then we can help connect you to others who are looking for a group. We prefer this to be a Spirit-led initiative, where you are prayerfully considering who the Lord has placed around you and then take initiative to journey deeper together.
    • To start a group or get connected contact: Carol Griffin or Pastor Carsten.
