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 four children: Lola, Caleb, Mia and Zoe.

‘With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfilment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.’ Ephesians 1:8–10
Dear friends and partners in the gospel,
Greetings from Belgium! We’ve just started a new sermon series at the church plant in Louvain-la-Neuve (LLN) looking at Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. We were really struck by God’s amazing plan for Jesus to be the supreme King of all things at the end of time. It’s tempting to look at how few Christians there are in Belgium or how few men and women are being trained for gospel ministry and think that Jesus is weak. Or as we chat with the parents at our children’s school, it’s easy to think that Jesus is irrelevant and that the best life is lived without him. How wrong we are to think those things! Jesus is neither weak, nor irrelevant! He is the key to the future of this world. Please join us and pray that we would really believe this and that we’d be more and more confident in Jesus this year.
