love community - making a difference to the world we live in

Salvos aren't living their best life unless they're helping others to do the same. The Bible says the 2 greatest commandments are to 'Love God' & 'Love Others' (Mark 12:30-31)

go to community

these are some of the things Tweed Salvos takes into the community to demonstrate care.



Through the gift of a cupcake, Salvos Cupcake Team members provide a contact point with Salvation Army services and communities where women can seek care and support, including assistance to exit the industry if they want to.

As a visible and available presence in brothels, strip clubs and other establishments, team members seek to reflect Jesus and connect with, and advocate on behalf of, vulnerable and marginalised women.

The teams listen to, care for, and build healthy and supportive relationships with the women, and with managers and receptionists in these environments, without judgement or discrimination


Emergency Services

The Salvation Army Emergency Services (SAES) teams are often found in the midst of crisis and disaster situations nationally and internationally. Our teams specialise in food services - providing for both displaced victims as well as the SES, emergency services and support staff that work to put-right disaster situations.

If you are interested in becoming part of the Tweed Salvos SAES team, please - contact us

Street Ministry

Tweed Salvos has a ministry to the local shopping centres around our community. During the week several shopping centres are visited by some of the members of Tweed Salvos to be a supportive presence to those in our community

This provides an opportunity for the locals to have a conversation with someone they know cares & has a physical point of reference when they need direction to find help, as well as being a point of contact for those who wish to donate to our work in the region.

Those that stop by will receive a friendly smile, a safe place to chat + a Warcry magazine or Kidzone for the young ones.

We're there to show we care.

support community

a foundational value of The Salvation Army is to see, treat & care for, every person as a whole being - emotional, physical & spiritual - William Booth (founder of The Salvation Army) once said... “What is the use of preaching the Gospel to men whose whole attention is concentrated upon a mad, desperate struggle to keep themselves alive?”

Financial problems can affect anyone, anywhere, at any time leaving people feeling lonely, embarrassed and isolated, when debt builds up, paying your rent is hard or even buying food for your family starts to feel overwhelming. If your financial situation gives you more of an icy shiver than a warm sense of safety, help is at hand.

If you find yourself in a sudden crisis, call us. We’ll listen and support you with immediate basic needs.  Call our Salvos Phone Assistance Line team in your state who will listen to the issues you’re facing and provide you with support options.

Doorways aims to support people as they seek to make changes in their lives. We believe everyone has the capacity to change and Doorways caseworkers walk alongside people as they develop plans to achieve their goals.

Casework can be undertaken either face-to-face or over the phone, depending upon your circumstances. Our service includes the provision of information, advocacy and appropriate referrals to other services.

All our services are open to all people and provided without discriminaion. There is no wrong door when seeking assistance from the Salvation Army. If we are not able to provide you with the right support, we will endeavour to put you in contact with people who can.


Every 17 seconds, The Salvation Army in Australia helps someone at one of our services or programs. This only happens because of the public’s generous support of the Red Shield Appeal.


As the impact of natural disasters, COVID-19 as well as the increased cost of living continues to affect people and families across the country, we have seen a larger demand on our services. The Salvation Army is asking you to help us leave no one in need by supporting the Red Shield Appeal.


There are lots of ways you can get involved in 2023. You can make a financial donation today, volunteer to collect or sign up as an online fundraiser through our Digital Doorknock.

The Positive Lifestyle Program (PLP) is an eight-module course used by hundreds of facilitators throughout Australia.

It takes people through a process of raising self-awareness to help participants address personal difficulties they may be unable to identify or address. Positively, PLP looks to build self-awareness, self-esteem and appropriate anger and assertiveness.


It also helps participants explore discontentment, fear, anger and fatigue, which can be involved when relationships and communication processes break down.


The Salvation Army one of Australia’s largest providers of alcohol and other drug treatment services. If you or someone you know is struggling with alcohol or drugs, we can help.

Each of our services across Australia offer a unique program for people experiencing alcohol or drug problems. You may find that the service that best suits your needs isn't the service that's located closest to you, and that's okay. Our centres welcome people from across the country.

The Salvation Army Tweed's thrift Store is based in the beachside town of Kingscliff.

Our community generously donates good quality products that our volunteers sort, display & price for the benefit of our community & it's a benefit in more ways than one.

Our products are reasonably priced to make then financially accessible to those who find making ends meet difficult.


It also gives us the opportunity to support those who come through our emergency relief services by being able to provide some of those essential needs that are out of financial reach.

In addition, every dollar that is spent in our local store remains in our local area to find the work of the local Salvos.

You get a bargain & our community experiences the benefit!
