HONGO LUTHERAN CHURCH
HONGO STUDENT CENTER
-A Sunny Corner of Grace-
a cozy place radiating God's amazing grace in the community
Lutheran missionaries from America came to Japan and established the Hongo Student Center near the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Tokyo with a vision of sharing God's love with the young future leaders who would be responsible for rebuilding a war-devastated Japan. The time was April 18, 1956.
Before long, a community of Christians was formed giving birth to the Hongo Lutheran Church. In 1966, the Hongo Lutheran Church moved to its current location.
The initial vision has since then broadened to include not only young university students but a wide range of people in the community from young kids to seniors. Our core purpose remains the same, to be a cozy place radiating God's amazing grace in the community ーSunny Corner of Graceー.
