We are Ayts Chayim Messianic Congregation Japan, a beautiful Messianic community, set in the heart of Tokyo but with members spread throughout Japan. In many ways, we do reflect the heart of Japan, or God’s heart for Japan. Our congregation, meaning Tree of Life Japan, is composed of Japanese, international, bicultural, Jewish and Gentile lovers of God. In our congregation are couples, singles, students, parents, grandparents, and children.
But his delight is in the Torah of Adonai,
and on His Torah he meditates day and night.
3 He will be like a planted tree over streams of water,
producing its fruit during its season.
Its leaf never droops—
but in all he does, he succeeds.
Psalm 1: 2, 3
It is fairly easy to feel isolated in Japan. One could be a master of going through the day-to-day all alone. We break some of the negative cycles that city life, specifically Tokyo life, can manifest. As we focus on growing as worshippers and believers of God, we are better able to be compassionate, generous, people of character. We pray for one another, we celebrate victories, and support each other in life’s difficult moments.
Here, there is community. Here, we are family, in the truest spirit of the word. We celebrate the Shabbat and the richness of all of the feasts (moedim) and festivals. We are planted as a Tree of Life, いのちの木, Ayts Chayim, here in Japan.
Come worship. Come bring your curiosity or love for Torah. Bring your thirst for something lasting, for peace that cannot easily be shaken. Messiah Yeshua is here.
We meet every Shabbat in north Tokyo (Kita-ku, Tabata), for a bilingual service from 1:30-4 pm. For those living outside of the Kanto area you are invited to participate via Skype each week as some of our members in the south of Japan do regularly.
