Saturday Shabbat Services:

Bilingual (English and Japanese) worship and Torah study services take place each Shabbat at Ayts Chayim Messianic Congregation Tokyo from 1:30 PM-4 PM, followed by fellowship, including intimate, thought-provoking discussion of that Shabbat’s Torah reading/parashah. We take great joy in our Shabbat rest. In God’s rest, we learn balance and can more fully enjoy every season, awakening to the power of His Word.

We look forward to Shabbat and savor the peace Adonai brings! Presently, we are enjoying some changes to the flow of the Shabbat service/day complemented by the mid-week Tuesday night Chavurah (English speakers) and Chazak (Japanese speakers) meetings. We are experiencing some phenomenal unity of spirit while catering to the different language groups to allow optimal growth for everyone.

Parasha/Torah study groups take place immediately after service from 4:00pm – 5:00 pm.

Tuesday evening meetings (Chavurah group & Chazak night) are our forum to discuss weekly parasha as well as allow for more personal sharing and ministry. The English speaking group gathers via a group Skype session from 8:30pm so you can participate from the comfort of your own home.

From worship nights to trilingual Havdalah, the close of Shabbat, and of course, High Holy Days, Ayts Chayim is invested to celebrating the L-rd and His Holiness.

Between classes, services, and special, set-apart times of worship, please feel welcome to any of these occasions.

As a congregation, we enjoy our time together, whether in worship, Torah study, delicious Oneg Shabbat lunch, or an evening of sweets and coffee following Havdalah, the close of Shabbat. Truly, it is Adonai who brings us together.

Visitors, do send us word that you are coming; we’d love to meet you at the station if you are a first-time visitor.



  1. Paul and Sara, it was a delight meeting you, hearing your testimonies and fellow shipping with you both in Messiah Yeshua. We are hoping to maintain contact with you and will continue enjoining our prayers with yours regarding The nation “Japan”. Blessings to you, your family and Congregation Ayts Chaiim. B’Yeshua

    Hilton, Gail, Krystal, Nicole Yhap
