In the past, the elders of Sanohara used their houses as places of prayer, but after the war, this became too cramped to accomodate everyone. In 1950, a temporary church was built, and in 1963, a full church was built. It's unknown when, but this church soon became an itinerant church of Tainora Church.

Churches are very important places of prayer for their followers. When observing churches, please follow proper etiquette such that everyone can feel comfortable in the churches. A guide for church etiquette can be found here.
