Our church was established on May 18,1890 as one affiliated to the old Congregational Church of Christ in Japan,made to belong to the United Church of Christ in Japan which was the further inclusive union of churches afterwards on June 24,1941,and has been kept as such until today.Therefore, the 117th anniversary has come at the point of May,2007.
The present church（hall）,Which has been designed by Vories Construction Design Office in heriting the name and the art of church building of W.M. Vories Who was an expert of the art,then built and dedicated in September, 1988,is the third（re)construction counting from the point of establishment.
When you come in the hall through the main entrance facing the Teramachi Street into the lobby；first of all you will see a stained glass picture drawing “Jeremiah the Prophet” on the window at the right−hand side there.The door of the entrance is usually opened even on weekdays so that anyone can freely come into the chapel,also freely go out of it,or pray inside.In front of or behind the chapel are the church office,the pastor's office,and a Japanese−style room,all used for the purpose of meeting visitors'needs.
On the second floor,there are a prayer room and a conference room other than the gallery of the chapel,being available for minor events and meetings； on the base floor,there is a centered large dining/conference room surrounded by an attached kitchen and an extraroom.An elevator connects these three floors to the full convenience of wheelchair users. Not limited to Sunday services kept in the morming time of the days,the chapel is available for a variety of musical events and meetings on weekdays； similarly；the basement conference room is applied as the meeting−acting place of various organizations and groups.
We have built up the present hall intending our church to be an OPEN one, not only for specific/registered believers but also for all the people including outsiders,as shown above partially.
We wish our church would be a mental oasis for the people of this age who are liable to suffer from spiritual thirst．
