English Bible Class is a unique opportunity to learn the message of the Bible, enjoy gospel songs and hymns, and meet friends with similar interests. We have been meeting for 21 years; new friends are always welcome to take part in the informal study, song and fellowship time.
The host, Brian Byrd, has specialized in teaching English and the Bible to children and adults throughout his 35 years in Japan. Classes are led so that all participants, from beginners in English and the Bible, to bilingual Bible scholars, can encounter the Bible as fresh and meaningful for life in these challenging times.
Christians from a variety of churches and countries, and non-Christians interested in English and the Bible attend. Do try a class sometime at your convenience! I am sure you will find it a blessing. I do.
Your fellow student, Brian
