Robbie and Lizzie spent eight years in Brussels, working alongside Woluwe Evangelical Church to share the gospel with unbelievers and build up believers in their faith. They moved to Louvain-la-Neuve in the summer of 2019 to begin a church plant there.
Louvain-la-Neuve is 30 minutes south of Brussels and home to many students, young professionals and families. Before the church plant began, there was no conservative evangelical church in the town. The church plant team started meeting informally in September 2019, whilst getting involved in the life of the town and getting to know locals. They officially launched the new church in September 2020.
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.
Robbie and Lizzie have three children: Lola, Caleb and Mia.

‘The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’ Exodus 34:6-7
We are about to start bible studies in the book of Exodus with the church plant in Louvain-la-Neuve, and I have been struck afresh by God’s amazing character that he reveals to us in the book. How wonderful it is to know that God is the LORD, the eternal, unchanging, self-sufficient God who is compassionate and gracious, forgiving all our sin, our wickedness and our rebellion, and yet who does not leave the guilty unpunished. Who knows what 2021 will bring after all the surprises we had in 2020? But we can always know that our God never changes and his character shown through the Exodus and at the cross is what sustains us day after day on our way to the Promised Land that awaits us in eternity.
