Like many countries in Continental Europe, only 1% of the population of Belgium are Christians.
The country is linguistically divided, with the Flemish-speaking Flanders in the north and the French-speaking Wallonia in the south. Brussels, although officially bilingual is majority French-speaking.
Robbie and Lizzie are working in Brussels amongst French-speakers seeking to share the gospel with unbelievers and build up believers in their faith.
Robbie is the assistant pastor at the Eglise Protestante Evangélique de Bruxelles-Woluwe (Woluwe Evangelical Church) in east Brussels, where he runs the student work. He also teaches one day a week at the Institut Biblique Belge (Belgian Bible Institute) training men and women for gospel ministry and is in the process of writing his Masters' thesis.
Lizzie is a full-time mum to Lola, Caleb and Mia and she helps out with the women's and children's work at the church.
They have been in Belgium since 2011.

‘To the only wise God be glory for ever through Jesus Christ! Amen.’ (Romans 16:27)
We long for people all over the globe to recognise God as the only wise one, having been reconciled to him by the death of his Son, the Lord Jesus. We’re really grateful for your partnership with us in prayer as we seek to proclaim Christ here in French-speaking Belgium, where there are very few believers.
We’ve had a busy last couple of months with the arrival of Mia Emilie Bellis (born 7 June). We’re very grateful to God for this gift and we’re praying that God will continue to give us energy and godliness as we adjust to life as a family of five. The summer holidays mean that the student programme at church takes a break so Robbie has been making progress on researching and writing his thesis.
