We would like to welcome you to ICEL.  We are an international Christian fellowship from many different backgrounds, cultures and nationalities.  We want to be a "home away from home" for the many who have come to study in Leuven or who are here for other reasons.  An important part of our community though are Belgians. They are the more permanent factor of our Church.  Through the 3 decades that ICEL exists, many hundreds have come and gone. With a large number of them we still have a strong link.  This makes ICEL, what it wants to be, a warm fellowship where Christ is central and His love is to be experienced.

Come, join us!

CHRISTMAS SERVICE and DINNER - 25 December 2017

Are you far away from home, family and friends at Christmas ? You are very welcome to join us for our Christmas service on Christmas Day in the Chapel of the Pope College (10 am) followed by a Christmas lunch, in Pangaea from about 12.00 till 14.00! We provide a basic rice dish and drinks and would like to ask you to bring something to go along with it such as a meat or vegetable dish, a salad or a dessert. Maybe a special dish from your country?!

Welcome to our church ! 


Fellowship and Prayer


There are different ICEL fellowship groups that meet in an informal way. Each one has a different character and does different things. But all will include prayer!

We also have our Thursday night prayer meeting at ICEL CONNECT. We would like to encourage you to send us your prayer requests and we will pray for you! Use the fill out box (left menu).

You can send it with your name etc. but even if you want to stay unknown, it’s all right. We will pray and God knows! In church there is also the “Red box”, in the back. You can drop a note there and we will take it to the Thursday night prayer meeting.
