We have over 100 Children and Youth who are part of Open Heaven. We place a high value on children and youth really knowing they are fully functioning members of our church community and not an add on. OH2 gatherings are exceptionally family-friendly and children are intentionally welcomed and included.
During Term-Time- our children are part of worship for the first 30 minutes.
We use creative worship, dance, drawing, lego, sung worship and the prophetic to enable children of all ages to meet with Jesus and contribute to our gatherings.
We have 6 children's groups for different ages (from age 1-14) that run during our Sunday gatherings, going out of the main hall at about 11am, for an hour. We have a high expectation of the children meeting with God, operating in spiritual gifts and being discipled.
During school holidays, we host engaging all-age gatherings, using zones.
When you arrive, you will be welcomed and helped to register your child for their groups. Come and find us at our check-in table in the foyer. You can see who leading and what will be happening on our visual timetable and leaders board.
Look out for our friendly children’s leaders in their brightly coloured t-shirts.
We are committed to equipping parents to be the primary place of discipleship for their children. We update this blog with many ideas we have used in OH2 and with our children.
