Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.  

Great Open Door Schools Ministry (GOD) is a group of Christians drawn from local churches who want to serve schools in Harlow, Essex and the surrounding area by providing quality school assemblies, religious education and literacy lessons.
"There are two things you can always say about Great Open Door. They’re entertaining and educational.
They always teach an important lesson in an imaginative way."

The 1988 Education Act states that daily collective acts of worship (commonly called assemblies) should take place in school and should be ‘wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character’.  This is where Great Open Door can help.

Great Open Door began delivering assemblies in September 2003.  This was followed by Literacy lessons in 2005, Workshops in 2011 and Prayer Spaces in 2012.  Over the years Great Open Door has developed good relationships with head teachers, teaching staff and children, who eagerly look forward to their visits. The most recent assembly on the theme of thankfulness was delivered into 18 primary schools. A head teacher subsequently wrote to say that the children left this assembly ‘excited and motivated’ which is just what we want to achieve.

With 35 schools and over 12,000 pupils in Harlow, Great Open Door is currently supporting over 50% of Harlow schools and wanting to serve more
