  Who is TUC?

Tokyo Union Church was founded in 1872(!) and is an ecumenical and international congregation of English-speaking Christians located in Tokyo, Japan.  

The word "union" is used to indicate that the membership is composed of Christians from many churches and nationalities who are united through a common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  

The members of Tokyo Union Church bring the richness of their own Christian heritage and experience into our worship, study, fellowship and service.  Tokyo Union Church is independent and financially self-supporting; it is  a member of the National Christian Council of Japan. 

We invite you to come and worship with us!

If you have any comments or suggestions concerning this website and would like to send them directly to the webmaster, please feel free to do so. Any relevant content including digital photos would be greatly appreciated. For general information about the church, please email to tuc@gol.com

Due to the new Personal Information Protection Law law which came into effect on 1st April 2005, we have had to remove the link to the Koinonia archive since these publications generally contain specific information about people from our church. In addition we will also be removing the announcements section from the bulletins from the downloadable bulletins in the archive. If you would like to receive an on-line pdf version of the latest Koinonia, please send an email to tuc@gol.com and we will email the file to you on return.

These changes are being made to comply with the new legislation but also to protect information from "outsiders" of the church.
