Open Heaven Loughborough
A bit more...
We currently have three expressions which meet across Loughborough:
is our gathering for 18-30’s meets in the afternoon. Every week we worship, immerse ourselves in scripture and push into God's presence together; propelled into a lifestyle of discipleship and mission. (Almost all our students are a part of OH1)
is our family-friendly expression. Our aim is for children to grow and flourish and for adults to be equipped and strengthened to establish heaven on earth.
is our intercultural expression with the missional focus of 'every tongue, tribe and nation'. As the newest expression of Open Heaven, our gatherings are centred around feasting and worshipping together, making space for the Holy Spirit to move and for relational depth within our community.
We have a strong discipleship culture, through one-to-one discipleship and Small Groups we love equipping and empowering students to live a lifestyle of mission in the everyday. We spot, equip and release young leaders - there are plenty of opportunities to serve and step out in gifting.
What do we do for students?
Students are central to the DNA of Open Heaven! We were birthed out of a move of God in students on campus over 20 years ago and our student worker Luc with his student team lead and oversee the student work.
We run Club Mission every FND (biggest student night out) in the Students Union. This is a space for us to share the love of Jesus practically by giving those on a night out a place to relax, to be heard and loved. It’s a unique opportunity as a student to be missional and outward focussed and meeting a need.
Student Small Groups are our primary place where we can belong, grow in our faith and be used to see heaven established on earth. We were designed for community, and we strongly encourage everyone in Open Heaven to be part of one. For Freshers, we have two specific Small Groups that meet on campus every Wednesday and Thursday.
We encourage our students to be adventurous and to dream big with God, to step out to see his Kingdom come, in Loughborough as in Heaven.
