Stephen and Yuki Williams have been serving the church community at Shigaraki Christ Church for a number of years.  Yuki is engaged in leading Bible studies and preaching there.  Stephen is involved in outreach in the local community and is also teaching English to a wide range of individuals.  

As Shigaraki is an important centre for pottery, Stephen has been able to engage with the local potters as he has good experience in this.  He is also active in gardening.   

Yuki has been able to minister more widely in support of Japanese people who return to Japan having encountered the gospel while abroad.  Lively meetings of returnees take place regularly, please consult the returnees' blog for more information (Japanese only).
