Lord, Your Army!

20 Oct | 2013

There are so many great memories from our recent Congress with the Army’s international leaders, General André Cox and Commissioner Silvia Cox, at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau last month. We’ve captured some in this edition, starting with the Just Action conference.

Still setting people free

1 Oct | 2013

This edition of War Cry carries an excerpt from Set Free, which tells the story of The Salvation Army’s long-standing work with alcoholics, addicts and, more recently, problem gamblers in New Zealand. Over 100 years since we began this work, lives are still being changed and people are still being set free.

The 'Congress' myth

20 Sep | 2013

This weekend, The Salvation Army in New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga is meeting in ‘congress’ at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau. It’s a time of celebration we’ve been looking forward to for many months, made even more special because of the presence of our new international leaders.

What's in Your Hands?

5 Sep | 2013

This week’s feature story about ultra-runner Claire Akin-Smith is inspirational. Not only because of the huge distances Claire runs—over 100 km and for as long as 17 hours straight—but because she has found a way to connect her passion for running with her faith.

Embedded in communities

24 Aug | 2013

There are some big churches in the world. Those with 2000 or more regular attenders are categorised as ‘mega churches’. Certainly, The Salvation Army couldn’t be described as a mega church, despite having 1.5 million members across the world. In New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, 8100 people worship with us every week. But that’s spread across 92 congregations in New Zealand, 17 in Fiji and six in Tonga.

Ordinary people living for Jesus

12 Aug | 2013

In this edition, we continue our focus on Salvation Army work overseas with an article by New Zealander Lieut-Colonel Jennifer Groves. At the age of 14, Jennifer knew God was calling her to a relationship that was more than lip service. ‘God wanted my whole heart, so that’s what I gave him,’ she says.

Change is good

31 Jul | 2013

Each year, The Salvation Army holds a fundraising appeal within its local churches to support our work in developing countries. This is known as the ‘Self Denial Appeal’. The words ‘self denial’ reflect the idea of sacrificing from what we have to strengthen God’s work and help others.

Different isn't bad

16 Jul | 2013

After I finished training as a Salvation Army officer, our class reunited for a conflict resolution course. This involved learning about temperament types using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. There was an ‘ah-ha’ moment when our class learnt the personality type of a sometimes irritating classmate. We finally appreciated there wasn’t something ‘wrong’ with him; he was just ‘different’ from most of us.
