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. Livestream services on July 11 and 25 will be by invitation only (for folks without computer access). Services on August 8, 22 and 29 will be by registration (information at a later date). We hope to be able to return to weekly unlimited in-person worship in September.

We continue to provide virtual worship services online Sundays at 11 am through our Livestream and YouTube pages:

Upcoming services:

June 20:  Indigenous Day of Prayer/ World Refugee Day - Members of the Sunday School will ring the First Met bell 215 times at noon in memory of  the children whose suspected graves have been found at the former residential school in Kamloops.

First Metropolitan holds two Sunday services each week. There is a weekly Communion service in the Chapel at 9:00 a.m. This small, intimate service is distinguished by its informality and lay participation.

The 11:00 a.m. service is in the Sanctuary. Children's Time and Sunday School programs are offered in conjunction with this service. The Sanctuary Choir, accompanied by the Director of Music Ministry on piano and organ, sings at the 11:00 a.m. service.
