The OPC places a large degree of importance on the youth of the congregation and over the years has provided a variety of outlets for its youth to participate in.
Covenanters is our Sunday evening youth group for age twelve years and upwards. The aim is to reach young people by offering an exciting attractive programme of teaching, worship, activity, fun, and fellowship to lead them to a knowledge and a love for the Lord, to serve their church, and to prepare them for full adult membership. The covenanters meet at 7:15pm on Sunday evenings in the church centre.
