A new church in Tokyo

Grace Harbor Church is a new church in Toyosu, a manmade island and a square mile section of the Tokyo Waterfront, a new area in center Tokyo made up of seven manmade islands spanning two square miles. Toyosu is at the center of this waterfront area. The condos, transit, shopping area and children's museum make Toyosu a new family magnet, and a two year old Grace City Church decided to send Seima Aoyagi to start a new church in this fast growing, family friendly area of Tokyo Harbor.

Grace Harbor Church Baptism

Seima Aoyagi, pastor of Grace Harbor Church, baptizes Yuuichirou Sakasita on August 2nd, 2015.

Toyosu is Family Friendly

One of the main reasons that Seima Aoyagi used the first two years to host community events rather than launching public worship was because Toyosu is the place to live if you’re a family in Tokyo. Rows and rows of mamicharis are lined up outside of the LaLaPort mall. These mommy chariots are a great way to truck the kids all over the Tokyo Waterfront Area, and with parks, an outdoor athletic complex, and even a massive wedding chapel, it’s a great place to raise a family only a couple of stops from Tokyo Station. 

Grace Harbor Church and Cafe;Haus

Grace Harbor Church uses Cafe;Haus for many of their events, and it's the first place they held worship services in 2014. Cafe;Haus is the only free standing restaurant in Toyosu. Most other restaurants are located in food courts in the LaLaPort mall or in a skyscraper. 

Creating Community on the Tokyo Waterfront

Last year, Grace Harbor Church held their first public service. They're one of two churches in this two square mile area. One church for 65,000 people. One group of people holding Frozen sing alongs, and bible studies, and art festivals.
