Who We Are

History of Abide

In November 2010, the vision of Abide began with a weekly Bible study on Friday nights in a meeting room at the Nagai Youth Hostel.

In September of 2013, we began meeting on Sunday afternoons also. At first it was just Sunday School for children. Two months later, in November 2013, we began to rent a second room and add an adult worship service.

We then began looking for a more permanent church facility, so that we could have more events and a stable presence in the community. God graciously provided, and On July 19, 2015, we celebrated our first worship service and Sunday School in our current location, with a beautiful view of Nagai Park through the huge windows of the sanctuary.
