Great Open Door’s vision is to ‘raise the next generation to know their God’ within Harlow, Essex and the surrounding area. As the next generation are found in school Great Open Door fulfils its vision by teaching the Christian faith and Christian moral values to primary school children in creative and relevant ways so that they can make an informed choice about belief in God and following His Son, Jesus Christ.
Our flagship 45 minute whole school assembly programmes cater for different learning styles and aim to capture each child’s imagination through a combination of entertainment and education, excitement and reflection, providing great fun and proclaiming great Truth. We build a ‘WOW’ factor into all we do and include puppets, which are used extensively, bold props, imaginative drama and catchy music, so that children experience the team’s joyful, living faith.
Great Open Door’s team of volunteers have consistently ‘sown seed’ and ministered in schools over the past 16 years, believing that schools ministry is of strategic importance to the town.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
