Welcome to First Metropolitan United Church!

A warm welcome to First Metropolitan United Church, part of the United Church of Canada.

The First Met Board is aware that the province is allowing in-person worship services of up to 50 people. Both the staff and Board wish to be cautious in reopening and so we are opting for a phased-in return. For details see here.

We continue to offer Sunday worship online at 11 am, as well as a range of other activities.

We are a diverse, inclusive and vibrant Christian community in the downtown North Park neighbourhood of Victoria, BC. We welcome everyone no matter their age, ethnic or cultural background, income, ability, gender identity and sexual orientation. Learn More

First Metropolitan United Church acknowledges and respects that we live, work and worship on the traditional territory of the  WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation. Their historical stewardship of this beautiful land  continues to this day.

First Met is committed to becoming an anti-racist congregation. See here for our full statement.

First Met is working toward being an Affirming congregation.
