CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL (4-11 years)
Start Time: 9.15am

Just as the adults in Open Heavens are encouraged to attend Sunday School, we encourage our children to attend Children’s Sunday School in the morning. This class is especially for children who come to church early in order to learn even more about the Word of God. It is a time of laughter, fun and games as they learn more about who Jesus is. This department is also part of the Children’s Ministry under Open Heavens Junior Church.

YOUTH FELLOWSHIP

Start Time: 1st Friday of the month @ 7pm

Youth Fellowship is a department of the Youth Ministry under the Open Heavens Junior Church but it is special as it caters for youths aged 19-29. During the service on Sunday, most youths of this age range are involved in on aspect or another, making it difficult to meet on a Sunday.

In order to cater to their unique needs, the Youth Fellowship have decided to have their meetings in a chilled out environment on the 1st Friday of the month. During these sessions, there are discussions about career, relationships, money, future plans and anything that affects their lives. The Word of God is woven through all these topics, encouraging young believers to hold on to God in their everyday pursuits despite what the world may say.
