Frequently Asked Questions

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.
