Christianity

There are many churches in Fukuoka. Protestant churches are quite common and quite easily found. Finding a church representing a smaller sect (such as Latter-Day Saints, Jesuit, or Russian Catholic churches) will take a little more work to find, but they are there.

Here are some resources to get you started:

Japan Assemblies of God (JAG) is based in Tokyo and has seven associated Protestant churches in Fukuoka. Tel 03-3918-0477.

J-CARM and Holy Ring are similar associations for Catholic churches.

Japan Baptist Bible Fellowship lists locations nationwide.

If you cannot find a church near your location and/or are interested in networking with Christian JETs, there is the JET Christian Fellowship (link to word document), a group organized by JET participants for JET participants.
