The Missions Team is all about helping the church fulfill its mission: “To reach the lost and make disciples”. To reach the lost, we plan events throughout the year.  Please contact to learn about the next event.

Home Groups

Home groups at IBCD provide an opportunity for closer fellowship. In the small groups there is the opportunity to study the word of God together and live life together. A chance to grow in our love for God and for one another.

There are several home groups in and around Düsseldorf, so you are welcome to pick the closest one to you to attend.

Open House

Open house is a community of twenty and thirty something young adults who get together regularly to share what God is teaching them in their lives. And of course there is a lot of food too. Get in touch with to learn more. 


Youth group meetings are a time when teens and pre-teens can develop healthy friendships with other kids their age; have discussions about the Bible and the christian life, share joys and difficulties teenagers experience, grow in their faith, and have lots of fun!

The meetings usually consist of eating together, a Bible study/discussion and games.
Sometimes we have special events, like games night, movie evenings, bowling, going out together, etc.

  • High School Youth Group – for 14 to 19 yo, meetings every Friday, from 18.30 to 21.30., in the Oasis Room
  • Junior High Youth Group- 11 to 13 yo. every Sunday during the morning service, in the Oasis room.

People are always welcome to help volunteer and do some crowd control but please contact Sabine or email first. Help providing food/snacks is also appreciated.

Children's Church

Our Sunday School program takes place every Sunday parallel the morning service. The kids are separated by age groups and taught in small groups about the Bible and the Christian faith in a way that they can understand using age-appropriate tools.

There are two main programs aimed at the children, Kid’s Quest and AWANA clubs.

After the morning service, our AWANA program holds on Sundays from 13H, which is geared towards children and youth. Awana offers a fun, proven approach for early evangelism and discipleship. Scripture-based programs and exciting games attract families, promote Bible literacy and help kids develop lifelong faith in Christ.

  • Our Vision: To Seek the lost and make disciples of the kids in our area.
  • Our Theme: Exploration and discovery

We are here in a beautiful forest setting and we want to bring this exploration metaphor to life. We want to help kids explore and discover what it means to have a vital, active relationship with the God who loves them and created them.

The kids are divided into age-groups in order to help them better interact with their peers and make the most of their lessons and time together. You can see the breakdown of the groups on the right.

Our programs use prepared materials that are easy to execute and kids love.
That means it is easy to be a volunteer. Helpers do not need to have previous experience working with kids, nor do you need to be a full member of IBCD. You need to have a relationship with Christ and be a regular part of the body of IBCD. There will be training provided and a background check for the protection of the kids.

  • Hikers: 2 & 3 year olds – Getting the little ones used to the Sunday School program while having fun and learing how God loves them.
  • Explorers: 4 – 7 year olds – Strengthening their foundation through engaging activities, Biblical stories, and memory verses.
  • Trailblazers: 8 – 12 year olds – Educating our children using a fun program that takes them through the entire. They can learn that the Bible is not just a bunch of little separate stories, but rather see how God’s love for us is woven through the entire events of the Bible and how it impacts our lives today.

Awana is an international children’s ministry which is non-denominational in nature and whose mission it is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. Founded 1950 it has seen explosive growth, now reaching 12,000 churches.
The name Awana is an acronym that is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. From this we get:

Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed = AWANA

Awana clubs invite your children from three years old (Kindergarten) through Elementary to join us weekly on Sundays from 1:15 – 3:00 p.m., September through May.

Our Awana meetings are broken into three primary components:

1. Handbook Time
: Each clubber will receive a handbook to work from and during handbook time, your child will work from his book with one-on-one assistance from a leader, learning lessons from the Bible, and memorizing verses.
2. Game Time
: Game time provides an opportunity for the clubbers to exercise their bodies and have some fun playing a variety of Awana games.
3. Counsel Time:
During counsel time, a Bible lesson or story is presented to the entire group and questions are answered.


Whether you are a member or guest of IBCD, a member of another church, or not a member of any church, your children are invited to Awana here. Our club is open to all children!
