A church on the move
God writes the best stories. He also writes our story, especially by using many different people who are committed and crazy about reaching the next target, many times with new visions for this church already on their minds.

ICF Vorarlberg is founded as the first ICF Church in Austria.
„ICF Church“ is renamed to „ICF Zurich“ since new ICF churches are being founded in different cities.
Leo Bigger, Matthias Bölsterli and Micky Conod establish the association „ICF Church“. Later, Micky Conod starts ICF in Basel. Matthias Bölsterli today leads ICF Geneva.
Heinz Strupler hands over the responsibility for ICF to Leo Bigger. At the same time, Matthias Bölsterli is pastoring Limmat Church. Bigger and Bölsterli soon decide to join their churches under the name „ICF“ because of their common focus and goal.
Different churches are founded because of the ICF events, amongst them the „EGG“ (Evangelische Gemeinde Glockenhof, later called „Limmat Church“), the „English Church of Zurich“ and the „Assemblée Chrétienne de Zurich“ as well as the Bible College „IGW“.
A new kind of inter-denomenational Worship Service called „ICF“ (International Christian Fellowship) is started at the St Anna Kapelle in Zürich as a result of the dream to make church more dynamic, attractive and relevant to people and to celebrate the common faith in the living God. Heinz Strupler is the initiator. The evening events attract up to 300 people who are coming from different non-denominational churches. The English name „ICF“ is used to specifically address foreigners as well.
