A NEW Tweed church has no name.

The No Name Church is for all denominations and no denominations.

"It's for everyone," founder Lyn Borthistle said.

She also believes that the needy should not have to pay for clothing and the joy of reading books.

For that reason, the church runs a free opp shop on Sundays, where people can access free clothing and use a free library.

The church has moved recently from Wharf Street to the South Tweed Community Centre on the corner of Heffernan Rd and Minjungbal Drive.

"Everyone is welcome," Ms Borthistle said.

"We are all about giving love and imparting the love of God where it is required."

The church is not money-orientated.

"There's nothing in it for me, other than feeling the joy of helping others," Ms Borthistle said.

"I wouldn't be in it if I didn't have a love for people."

The shop is open every Sunday from 10am and is situated in the community hall near the Tweed Heads Swimming Pool.
