Preserving our story

The Salvation Army Heritage Centre and Archives tells the story of The Salvation Army since the 1880s to the present. We have a particular interest in history relating to New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

We collect, preserve, record, research and make accessible material that provides an accurate and comprehensive record of The Salvation Army’s life and work.

We can also advise regarding research on Salvation Army work in other parts of the world.
