Welcome to

Vancouver Japanese Gospel Church



We are a Protestant church located in New Westminister, British Columbia in Canada. Our church members range across all ages from infants to seniors.  Our members are mostly of Japanese origin, but we also have Canadian, Korean, and Chinese members attending our church. Many international students from Japan attend our church and find Christ here in Canada.


There is a Japanese saying, “hyakubun wa ikken ni shikazu”, which means, “Hearing a hundered times is not as good as seeing once.” Similarly, Jesus called his disciples to his side and said, “Come, and you will see” (John 1:39).


Please feel free to make your way to our church. We pray for God’s blessing upon those who have come across our website.

Small Groups

Y.Y Service at 3 PM

Y.Y. Service is the youth and young adult service we hold every Sunday at 3:00PM. It’s especially tailored for newcomers and the young adult crowd at church, because we sing enthusiastically, the Gospel messages are easy to understand, and there are lots of young people who are happy to make new friends. Each month, we hold an “Open Y.Y. Service” planned by the IYG Groups where we have a full band, special events, and dinner provided for just $2.00. Anyone is welcome to join us anytime! Won’t you invite a friend and come this Sunday?
