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.
Binche church is suffering. Three members are in hospital with serious health problems and several others are struggling with illness at home. This is not good timing as we have just relaunched Sunday services indoors.
Please pray for our support for these people – we feel rather overwhelmed, particularly as their problems are wider than just the medical!
Pray also for our planning of services (now in-person), especially as we try to organise preachers and music for the weeks we will be absent (or maybe in quarantine from our time away).
