Giving goodness to empower those in need.
Who We Are
At Goodness Enterprises we are actively creating and providing tangible goodness to support communities and nature. Our goodness has no limits. It reaches into the hearts of those that need help and engage with those that can help. Working collaboratively with governments, organisations and individuals – we believe in power of goodness and that everyone should have access to it.

Tivoli Drive In
The Tivoli Drive In first opened its gates in 1976 and quickly became an iconic Ipswich cinema venue with The Drive In closed in March 2000 and the property was purchased by Rivers of Life Christian Church in 2003 and dedicated as the Tivoli Miracle Centre with a vision of transforming the derelict former cinema into a thriving 7 day per week Church and Community Centre.
In 2008 the church revived Tivoli Drive In as a weekly community Drive In theatre focussed on providing families with low cost family oriented entertainment, and providing employment and work skills training opportunities for unemployed young adults and youth.
