Switzerland ICF Worship

ICF Worship has its roots in the ICF Zurich church, founded in 1996 in the largest city in Switzerland.

ICF Worship is not simply a band or a bunch of musicians writing worship songs and performing. It is strongly connected with and focused on the local churches of the ICF Movement and beyond. They aim to write songs that don't just connect with churchgoers but that also speak to someone who is new to the gospel or the church.

ICF Worship are set to release an album titled 'The Journey: A Collection' on 13th October 2017. This year marks 20 years of ICF as a church and this album is a celebration of that with a collection of songs that tells the story of ICF to this point. Their latest single 'Unstoppable' has just been released. Find out more...

Netherlands Kees Kraayenoord

At aged 17 Kees Kraayenoord became involved with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) where he was encouraged to not only develop his musical gifts, but to strengthen his knowledge of Jesus Christ and learn what he could about the heart of worship. The more he grew, the greater his involvement became in Christian music and worship projects.

Kees has opened for Michael W. Smith, Third Day, Delirious? and Tim Hughes, and written songs with Tim Hughes, Martin Smith, Al Gordon, Ben Cantelon and others. From sharing the platform with Tim Hughes, he was asked to help build Worship Central Netherlands, with the aim of training and equipping worship leaders, musicians and worshippers.

Kees has grown in other areas too, becoming a respected speaker. “I hardly speak about worship. I love to speak about being a disciple or talking about brokenness and the fact that God still loves us. I need to hear it and remind myself of it all the time.” In 2013, Kees and his wife Nicole started a church called Mozaiek0318. Find out more...
