Welcome to Metropolitan!
A Message from our Ministers

‘Comfort ye my people,’ cries out the prophet Isaiah. The ancient words ring true. As we begin another church year and look to the end of a difficult calendar year, it is good to know that we will yet again tell the story and sing the songs as we wait with expectation to celebrate the audacity of joy at new life in the birth of this Jesus.  Physically apart for worship this Advent season, we are grateful for the ability to livestream our worship. Please join us - there will be comfort and connection aplenty! 

- The Rev. Karen Bowles, The Rev. Jason Meyers and Dr. Patricia Wright, Minister of Music

In addition to offering a welcoming home for worship since 1818, Metropolitan serves our community by offering a variety of outreach services and programs, particularly during Covid-19. Initiatives during the pandemic include a weekly Hospitality Tent in the park and a successful meal program partnering with local restaurants to provide nutritious meals, as well as grocery and housing support, clothing donation and more.

Met has been involved in social service downtown since 1917, long before government supports existed. Under our outreach umbrella, many programs today are run by church staff and volunteers, while others use our church facilities or receive other support. Most of our activities take place in the 11,000 sq. ft. MET Centre.

We would be most grateful this holiday season if you would consider a donation to help us in the work we will do in worship and outreach at the heart of downtown Toronto in 2021 and beyond. Thank you!
