At Goodlife Church we value 3 things in our kids programs: 1) Safety, 2) Fun, 3) Learning. 

Our aim is to champion a generation of kids to be bold in faith, courageous in action, and know how to have a whole lot of fun along the way! We do this by partnering with you - the parent/guardian!

Below you will find more information about what we offer at each location, for your children & you!

You can be confident that at every Goodlife location our team are working hard to ensure programs are age appropriate in everything - from fun to food to learning and more! There are 4 elements to all of our programs, no matter the location: Play, Praise, Preaching and Participation. We believe that by including these elements your child has the best opportunity to grow in their understanding of God, and grow healthy relationships with other children their age.

When you arrive, look for our Goodlife Kids check-in station. One of our friendly team members will help check your child into our system. You and your child will receive personalized, coordinating ID tags unique to your family and your visit, which you will show after the service in order to pick up your child.

At check-in, we will ask for the following personal information: Family member’s names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions such as allergies or special needs for your child.

If for any reason we need to contact you during the service, your child’s ID code will appear on the screen in the auditorium. If you see your ID code, please exit the auditorium, go to the Goodlife Kids area, and ask a team member to take you to your child’s room.


Our teams are made up of volunteers who are passionate about kids, and have completed a NSW Working With Children Check. We also complete ongoing training/development with our teams in areas such as child safety, to ensure your kids are in the best possible care whilst with us.


We are passionate about creating an environment where families, marriages and children can thrive! We do this by offering marriage seminars, pastoral care, running family specific courses through some Connect Groups, and more!
