Japan remains one of the world’s least-reached nations. Fewer than 0.5% of Japanese are thought to be Christians. Japan Christian Link wants to help change that. Our goal is to help make a significant difference in the progress of the gospel among the Japanese people over the first half of this century. We seek to do this through educating, encouraging and equipping Christians so that, more and more, the good news of Jesus Christ will be proclaimed clearly, and disciples of Jesus Christ multiplied, among the Japanese people, for his glory (Matthew 28:19-20). Find out about our origins, our vision, who we are and what we do ..... and come and meet a few of our people. more...

Japan Weekend Conference in the UK, 8-10 July 2016http://edit.jclglobal.org/images/jcl/66-sunday-barbecue-queue.jpg

Our last conference took place at All Nations Christian College in Hertfordshire in March 2015 with Dr. Mitsuo Fukuda, from Osaka, as the main speaker. There were some thought provoking good principles as well as some controversial ideas. It was also a great chance for Japanese in the UK to come and be encouraged or prepared for their eventual return home, as well as for other Christians in Britain who are interested in or engaged in mission among Japanese to be better equipped for that or better informed for prayer. Our next conference is planned for 8-10 July 2016 at the same venue, ANCC, with Yuji Uno of the Japan Navigators as visiting speaker.  Put that date in your diary now!!

London VIP Club - The next meeting coming Monday 9th Nov, 7-9pm at Miyama Japanese restaurant very near St Paul's Cathedral. The cost, including meal, is £20.
