Community Arts Tokyo was started in direct response to the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disasters on March 11, 2011.
We experienced firsthand the power of the arts to encourage, build community, and bring healing. Since that time, we have continued to work through the arts as a powerful tool for church growth. As a partnership between MTW missionaries and Japanese nationals, we work alongside local churches to disciple artists, develop leadership training, and assist in worship, evangelism, and other needs of the church.
Our staff lead worship in churches around Tokyo, and we are encouraging a movement of new hymn and song writing and translation. Last year, we printed our first songbook “CITY PRAISE 2017 Worship Songbook” with 96 pages of newly-composed or newly-translated Japanese songs and have been recording these songs. We also offer musical instruction in piano, organ, and guitar to train the next generation of worship leaders.
Please consider supporting church planting through the arts in Japan!
