Charles and Frances have been serving in Belgium for 28 years, originally with VIANOVA (formerly the Belgian Evangelical Mission) and now with Crosslinks. They worked with a number of churches before planting a church in Binche in 2005.
Eglise Protestante Evangélique de Binche is a small church made up of around 20 people. Charles preaches most Sundays whilst Frances leads services, teaches in the Sunday school, manages finance and admin and helps with music.
Binche and the surrounding region have a population of 121,000 but just two other protestant churches. Charles and Frances run a youth group in the town, reaching up to 20 teenagers each month. Frances also reaches out to the community through teaching English and taking part in walking and art groups.
Thank you so much for praying for us. Prayers for the Binche Christmas event were certainly answered. We think there were about 45 people present (including visitors) but it is always hard to tell on Zoom.
The aim was to involve everyone: well, nearly everyone had a part to play and there was a great atmosphere of being together as a family. A particular feature was having the refreshments delivered to our doors. Above is a picture of us receiving ours!
We were also able to organise a little pack of biscuits and a personalised card for all the 175 residents of the local old people’s home.
