Welcome to the Community Church of Honolulu

Community Church of Honolulu (CCH) was established in 1934 by college and high school children of first-generation Chinese immigrants, with the intent of being a congregation-based, inclusive community of faith that would reflect Hawai‘i's diversity.

We celebrate God's presence in our lives through inter-generational Sunday worship at 9 a.m., followed by fellowship and Christian Education opportunities. We seek to serve the wider community in Christ's love and humility. We invite you to join us in a community of faith, sharing the love of Jesus Christ with each other and all people.

Community Church of Honolulu is a member of the United Church of Christ, whose congregational ancestors brought Christianity to Hawai‘i in the early 1800's.

The purpose of this website is to invite you to come to know who we are as a people of faith. Please contact us if you would like to know more about Community Church of Honolulu.

We trust, if it is God's will, that you will come and enjoy a personal experience of how God is at work with CCH through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Pastor's Greeting

  • October Greeting

    Every Sunday, at the start of our service I make the proclamation that "Whoever you are or wherever you are on your life journey you are welcomed in our midst, as we together seek to experience God's extravagant Love."

    That statement isn't far removed from the church's creed established at our church's beginnings some 80 years ago, which states "We purport to be democratically Christian, believing that the democratic process is the most educative in the development of personality ... We purport to be a community church in facta community church is supra-racial and supra-national, open to all, regardless of race, class or cast, and seeks to render a real service to the community in the light of its needs ... ."

    For 80 years, Community Church of Honolulu has sought to be a place that is inclusive to everyone and a service to the community at large. In 1934, 31 young people started a new church and within a year the number had doubled, with the major majority being under 40 years of age. Community Church of Honolulu, through its members and outreach, has played a significant part in the life of the Honolulu community.

    This month we will officially celebrate our 80th anniversary with a concert on the 25th and a celebration worship on the 26th. We today are a vibrant church with an international mission outreach, we play a major role in the support of the United Church of Christ mission and vision on our island and within our state. Thankfully we have the capacity to continue our work and mission into the future as we continue the work that was begun 80 years ago and continue to listen for God's direction and call into the future.

    We who are part of the church today have been entrusted a legacy from those who have come before us. May God empower us to leave as viable a legacy to the generations who will come after us as the one that we have received from the generations before us.

    Looking with hope into the future!


    Pastor Ron Williams
