Since its foundation in 1865, The Salvation Army has seen and affirmed the value of women in ministry. Women were commissioned as Salvation Army officers (ordained ministers), from the beginning of our history. Women were also encouraged to serve as local officers (lay leaders and elders), and be actively engaged in the salvation war. Our history is filled with the results of women who have made a positive difference in their homes, corps, communities and the world.
Throughout New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, The Salvation Army is constantly seeking to be relevant to the ever-changing needs of women. In Salvation Army corps (churches) and social centres a wide variety of programmes and service opportunities are provided.
For more information about Women's Ministries, please email us at the territorial office, or contact your local Salvation Army for local Women's programmes and events.
