The Japanese congregation at CPC is known popularly as the Melbourne Japanese Christian Church (MJCC).
The MJCC Sunday service is at 10:30 am in the Bamboo Hall (building at the rear of the main church facility – see photo below). Japanese children join together with the English Service kids for a common Sunday School Program.
The first Sunday of the month is our full-church ‘Combined Service’ of both the English and Japanese congregations. On these occasions, Japanese written-translations of the sermon are provided and all Bible readings are projected on screen in three languages.
