Our Story

Our story started in the heart of PJ and Elizabeth Booth in 1991 when their lives were completely transformed by God. A passion formed to see God move through the local church and impact our community.

In 1996, our core leaders met to pray. It was over the next 4 years that everything started to come together and an exciting journey began that has led to a local church that has not only impacted our community, but is impacting our nation.

Open Arms Church was launched in April 2000 with 30 people. Since then God has moved in amazing ways and used Open Arms to change hundreds of lives in the Leinster Area. God has shown so much favour and blessing over our church, and we truly believe that ‘the best is yet to come’!

God has sown a vision in our heart to extend the local church by planting churches within the Leinster Area.
Over the next 5 years we plan to extend ourselves from Newbridge right through to Dublin with a number of churches.

We believe that as we move, God moves through us. We believe that He will build his church and it is for us to be obedient to His direction.
