CHILDREN & YOUTH
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 just an add-on. OH2 gatherings are exceptionally family-friendly and children are intentionally welcomed and included.
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. 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 is 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 also put on Powerhouse twice each term where all children in school years 1-6 join together for a session full of fun and worship together!
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. During school holidays, we host engaging all-age gatherings so the whole family can engage together.
We are always looking for helpers in our Children's groups, without our teams they simply can't happen! Click here if you are interested in serving in Children's groups.
