‘It has been a great honour for us to work closely with people from all sectors of society and we will miss our many friends here,’ said Commissioner Shaw Clifton.

‘We are proud to have had the opportunity to be a part of The Salvation Army’s long tradition in New Zealand of transforming lives through God’s grace and caring for people in need.’

Commissioner’s Shaw and Helen Clifton have been based at The Salvation Army’s Wellington headquarters since 2002. They were previously territorial leaders for Pakistan and have also held educational, corps (church), divisional and other specialist appointments in the United Kingdom, Zimbabwe, USA Eastern Territory and at the Army’s International Headquarters (IHQ) in London.

The Cliftons will be succeeded in June by Lieut-Colonels Garth and Mel McKenzie, currently Chief Secretary and Territorial Secretary for Women’s, Adult and Family Ministries of the New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga Territory.

The Salvation Army is a worldwide evangelical Christian Church and human service provider. The Salvation Army works for the reform of society by alleviating poverty, deprivation and disadvantage, and by challenging evil, injustice and oppression, in the name of Jesus.
