We’re a member of the Anglican Church of Canada

We are an inclusive church – We welcome every single one of God’s children.

We’re a community church

We have been a part of the Metchosin community since 1873 and we plan on sticking around. Lots of things have changed in over 140 years, but God’s love never changes – we welcome you into our community, we accept all, and we welcome your involvement with us.

We’re a family church

We recognize that families come in a kaleidoscope of shapes and sizes and we are happy to include everyone in our worship service – we’re very relaxed.
