Religious Services

The Chapel of Hope is the largest religious program in the U.S. Navy!  

It is a multi-faith community serving over 24,000 personnel and family members who work and reside in Yokosuka and Ikego military housing areas as well as many military families and individuals who live off-base in the Japanese community.  

The Chapel of Hope offers several opportunities for worship services, sacramental and pastoral ministries, children/youth ministries, spiritual music, community outreach, humanitarian service and religious education.  We also offer pastoral counseling to individuals, couples, single Sailors, family members as well as crisis intervention.  Please see our section on religious services consisting of Roman Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, and various Protestant including Gospel Services, Filipino Services, General Protestant, Protestant Communion Service, Contemporary Christian Services, Church of Christ, Seventh-Day Adventist and others.   

Ministry to people lies at the heart of who we are, and what we do every day. We are dedicated to fostering spiritual growth and fellowship. If you are interested in volunteering or participating in any of our ministry programs to include:  Choir, Roman Catholic and Protestant Youth Groups, Sunday School, Bible Studies, CCD (Confraternity Christian Doctrine), AWANA, Japanese Women’s Bible studies, Protestant Women of the Chapel, Men’s Studies...etc., let us know.
