Welcome to First Metropolitan United Church!

A warm welcome to First Metropolitan United Church.

We are a diverse, inclusive and vibrant community in the heart of Victoria, BC. We welcome everyone no matter their age, ethnic or cultural background, income, ability, gender identity and sexual orientation. 

You don't have to have your life together - imperfect people are welcome. 

We invite you to share our Christian journey as we seek to be a transforming presence in our city and the world. Our spiritual development, health and wellness, social justice and children and family programs are open to all as we try to live our faith in ways that enrich ourselves, our community and the world.

Join us Sundays at 11 a.m. for our in-person worship service (or view us online via livestream) or come any other time for one of our wide range of programs.

There is no dress code, except to wear clothes. 

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.
