Our Lenten Mission: To be fully present in the world restored, refreshed, forgiven, and joyful; to live as Christ would have us live, as ambassadors of love and justice.

Welcome to First Metropolitan United Church!

A warm welcome to First Metropolitan United Church, part of the United Church of Canada. We regret that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person worship services are suspended but we 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.


February is Black History Month, the time when we celebrate the achievements,
contributions and struggles of peoples of African descent. First Met is committed to becoming an anti-racist congregation. See here for our full statement against racism.
