We believe that all children in The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa deserve to be both seen and heard.
Children have full capacity to receive and communicate the love, mercy and grace of God. It is our privilege to encourage them to voice their experience of the divine in their own unique ways.

We work to equip our corps and centres across the territory to create opportunities for children to wonder at God and His creation, and to testify of His presence in their lives. You can find more information about training opportunities here.
Additionally, we produce Family Time resources to help parents and caregivers explore faith with their children in their homes. You can check out those resources here.
Our Children's Ministries team is spread out over islands and oceans but we’re all here for one reason: kids! Some of us hang out at The Salvation Army Territorial Headquarters in Wellington, and the rest of our awesome crew are situated in each of the Divisional/Regional Headquarters’ within New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa.
The Salvation Army in NZ, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa is made up of five divisions and two regions. In New Zealand, we have Northern Division (upper North Island), Midland Division (middle North Island), Central Division (lower North Island), and Southern Division (South Island). Fiji Division includes all the islands of Fiji, the Tonga Region is all of Tonga, and the Samoa Region covers all of Samoa.
