Annual activities of TEC
New Year's Day Service
(1st of January at 12:00)
The new year's day service is performed to give thanks for God's blessings during the previous year and the new year.
Après le Service, le TEC organise une fête de l'Osechi où seront préparés le mochitsuki et la cérémonie du thé.
(Every 2nd Sunday of the month at 10:30)
This is observed every month. The service observed in January and October is called the Grand service because the 26th of October commemorates the day when Tenrikyo teaching was founded and the 26th of January commemorates the day when the foundress Miki Nakayama withdrew from Her physical presence. The service is followed by a sermon.
