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.
A big thank you for your prayers that we would be able to visit the UK and see our children. We did! We saw all of them for extended periods, Charles’ mother and all our siblings (except Estella who lives in Japan and is currently unable to leave).
Our dream of having all our family in the same place at the same time evaded us as we found ourselves still in quarantine for the second birthday party and the day before our second attempt Zoe developed a temperature so her family had to cry off. But 'worse things happen at sea' and we feel remarkably privileged to have seen them all and hugged most of them!
