Transition Update:

Pacific Mountain Region surplus decision is still underway. We will keep you updated as we get word from the PMR what the decisions are related to their deliberations. We submitted additional information by Nov. 13 as requested and are now awaiting further instructions and/or a decision.

Name change:

We moved into our new space in late November and have now collectively become Broad View United. The official amalgamation date was Dec. 31, 2023.

Address and Phone Number:

The new address for BVU will be 3703 St Aidan’s St, Victoria BC V8P 2V7. We will have multiple phone lines, but our published number will be 250-590-3677. All staff can be reached at this number and each staff member will have a private voice mail box where you can leave messages.


All ministry and program staff will have a BVU email address with their first name Former FM emails will be forwarded to their new addresses over the next 8 months as people get the chance to update their contact lists and be informed of the change. will be the main email contact for administration matters and Oscar will monitor this email address.


The current BVU website will be maintained with up-to-date information and the FM website will stay active but will link into the BVU website. A team of folks are working hard on the redevelopment of our website, and it will go into production early in 2024. We will keep you updated.

Financial contributions:

Until Dec. 31, 2023, FM and BVU operated as distinct financial entities. Your financial offerings and contributions will continue to be directed to the designated congregation and budget. Tax receipts will be issued under each individual CRA charity number and sent to congregants by the end of February.

As of Jan. 1, we have become one financial and legal entity with one budget and one CRA number. PAR contributions will automatically be redirected and a letter explaining this process will go to all those on PAR at FM. Those using envelopes will also receive a letter with information about how to contribute in 2024. Questions about this can be directed to either Liane or Paul Malnarich.


Our first worship services in the new site began Nov. 26 and we have returned to multiple service offerings on Sunday morning. The Chapel communion service will continue at 9 am in the BVU chapel. The Bridge service will begin at 9:30 am and the ConXion service will begin at 11 am and both will be held in the Sanctuary. Preservice Coffee/tea will be served in the Narthex and you are invited to grab a cup and bring it into worship. Post-service coffee gathering will be held in the Commons.


The whole building at our new site is fully accessible. Gone are any impediments to the two main entry ways into the building and both are equipped with auto openers. Inside you will find wider hallways, auto opening doors, accessible washrooms and an elevator to transverse between the two floors. All washrooms on the main floor are gender neutral and in the lower level there is a mix of washroom designations.


Parking - Parking has always been a challenge at all three sites. We will navigate this in multiple ways just as we have while have while worshipping at First Met. Parking in the main lot will be reserved for those with mobility challenges.

There are 45 parking spots that will adequately serve those who need level ground and short distances into the building. On the east side of the building there are 7 spots that we are suggesting be reserved for parents with young children. A slight incline up to the main level will still provide close access for lugging kids and their equipment.

Additional parking for the rest of the congregation can be found in the parking lots surrounding the church and on the various streets that surround Horner park. Park the distance away that suits your mobility and enjoy a Sunday walk.

Carpooling - Carpooling is an excellent way to both save on gas and parking challenges and to encourage comradery to and from worship on Sundays. Many have found in the transition time new friends and companions to journey to worship.

Bus routes - Bus numbers 14, 15, 27 and 28 all come near the Broad View United building with a short walk from either Shelbourne / Cedar Hill Cross or Richmond / Cedar Hill Cross.

Need a ride? - If transportation is a challenge for you to navigate the change in worship venue, please let us know and we will help find a solution for you. We are aware of folks who perhaps live nearby that would be willing to provide a ride to church. Other options are also being explored. DO NOT LET TRANSPORTATION BE A BARRIER. We can solve that with you.

Grand Opening:

Our arrival into the new building lead us through Advent and an abundance of Christmas activities. It felt like too busy a time to have our grand opening celebration in December and so we will instead have a grand celebration on Sunday, Jan. 21, in the afternoon. This will be a time to thank the many professionals and volunteers involved, invited members of other churches that surround us, and members of the community to join us in celebrating and dedicating this building to the mission and ministry of Broad View United. Details are in the January newsletter.
