About Open Heaven

About Open Heaven

Open Heaven is a Spirit-filled church flowing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit and impacting the region around us.
We are a church community passionate about Worship, the Word of God, the Presence of God, and taking the power of the Gospel to the world around us.
Our church has been established in the Liverpool LGA (local government area) of Sydney since 1961.
We believe we have a mandate to carry revival into the city around us and believe transformation will come to our city as we sow into the spiritual ground around us.
We are currently pastored by Pastors John and Kerry Hemans, who have led our church since 2011.
We meet on Sunday mornings at 10 am.

The Word of God

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

As a Bible believing church that regards the Old and New Testament scriptures as the plenary Word of God, we value Bible teaching and preaching, and believe that man’s deepest problems are addressed in the Word.

Worship Ministry

Psalm 22:3
But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel.

Worship is one of the most important areas of ministry at Open Heaven Church.

We believe that as God is worshiped in spirit and in truth, His presence is released among us in power. We also have a strong focus on prophetic worship, and expect the Lord to speak to us as we minister to Him in praise and worship.


John 4:35
Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!

As a church we are passionate about evangelism, reaching out to those who don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our church partners in the Church in the Park community outreach held on the first Saturday of each month in Bigge Park, Liverpool, and Pastor John has ministered internationally in prisons in Nicaragua, Honduras and Mexico City.


Do you want to become a true disciple of Jesus?

Do you want a closer relationship with God?

Jesus said to His disciples “ Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20 – NKJV)

Kids Church

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

Our Kids Church pastor is Sylvia Deall. Sylvia has ministered in Australia and internationally in Africa, Central America, India, Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu.

Sylvia holds a Masters Degree in International and Community Development.


Matthew 28:19-20
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Our church is committed to the missions command given us by Jesus.
Apart from financuially supporting Foursquare Missions in our region, we have an ongoing relationship with a community in Papua New Guinea, helping with financial support and taking teams there on a regular basis.

In April 2015 we dedicated their new church building and witnessed the beginning of an outpouring there – watch the clip below –

Inner Healing Ministry

Open Heaven Inner Healing Ministry

Though we have no formal affiliation with Elijah House, Open Heaven Church ministers in inner healing following the Elijah House ministry model, and our prayer ministry team has been fully trained by Elijah House.

An outline of the principles behind this ministry appears below, more information can be found on the Elijah House web site (http://www.elijahhouse.com.au/)

Elijah House ministry is based firmly on Biblical principles that…

It is the power of the cross, through the Holy Spirit and by the truth of God’s Word, that works to bring lasting healing and restoration to the family.

God’s laws, both natural and spiritual, are absolute and are written into the universe. Laws such as:

– Honour your father and mother Ephesians 6:2-3

– Judge others and you will be judged Matthew 7:1-2

– You reap what you sow Galatians 6:7-8

– The principle of increase Hosea 8:7a

These laws impact our lives whether or not we believe or understand them, and we reap the consequences when we break them.

The driving force behind the recurring patterns of trouble in our lives start when…

As small children we respond to hurts in sinful ways

We nurture seeds of anger, resentment, bitterness and unforgiveness in our hearts

As adults we forget the incidents that led to the hurt and react to people in ways we don’t understand

Christ’s work is complete, but God is still at work in our lives.

True freedom requires first recognizing that many of today’s problems have their roots in our sinful responses to yesterday’s wounds.

We are reconciled to God and one another when we…

Recognise the destructive patterns in our lives

Forgive those who hurt us, and ourselves

Repent, resulting in real change

Confess and seek God’s forgiveness for our sinful responses
