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 young families. At present, there is no conservative, evangelical church in the town. The church plant team will start meeting informally on Sunday afternoons from September 2019, whilst getting involved in the life of the town and getting to know locals. They plan to officially launch 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.

‘And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.’ Philippians 1:9-11
This is our first prayer letter written from Louvain-la-Neuve, the university town 30 minutes south of Brussels where we are looking to start a church. There is so much to give thanks to God for in these last few months. He has provided a house for us in a great location in Louvain-la-Neuve, which is also very close to Lola’s school. This is a real answer to prayer. For a long time we couldn’t find anything and God opened the doors for a house which really suits the needs of family and ministry life. We moved at the end of August, which was tiring, but we’re very glad to be here and we feel like we’re slowly settling into life here as a family.
