I’ve got kids. Can I still come along?
We provide onsite childcare, with experienced volunteers, all of whom have Working With Children Checks.

I notice it’s run by a local church. Is it a religious course? Do I need to be a Christian?
The Happiness Lab is run by St Matthew’s, a local church in Long Gully. The course is not religious in content. It is designed to be open to people of any faith, or no faith.

Christmas Eve Service 2015

Enjoy a Christmas Eve Service at St Matthew’s Church, Long Gully.

There’ll be carols, the Christmas story and supper afterwards.

St Matthew’s is kid-friendly and if you don’t come to church much, we’re not phased.

Jesus and Pancakes

At St Matthew’s we do a bunch of stuff that anyone can be involved, not matter what take you have on religion and spirituality – there is the garden, toy library, playgroup etc.

But we are also pretty passionate about following Jesus – if that’s something that interests you, provokes you, intrigues you… then come along this Sunday 10am to Gully Gathering.

Gully Gathering is a down to earth and simple church service. You can expect some songs, discussion about Jesus, prayers for our world and people in need, and a kid-friendly environment.

You can also expect pancakes.
