Who are we?

Edinburgh Japanese Church was started on 23rd of September 2007. We are a group of international Christians who worship together every Sunday in Japanese with an aim of reaching out to Japanese people.The church seeks to reach the approximately 2,000 Japanese people in Edinburgh and the surrounding area with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We have regular events for young people, such as outings, short trips, BBQ parties etc. We encourage and share with each other through Christian faith. Also many people from different countries attend these events, including people from Japa, China, Korea and Scotland. There are lots of chances to experience Scottish culture, such as Burn's Night and at ceilidhs (Scottish dancing). Occasionally we open a one-day Japanese Café to support students in Japan.
