Welcome to Metropolitan
A Message from Rev. Jason Meyers

Before we get to the stars and angels and Christ child in manger, we first journey through the season of Advent. This is a time of preparation and expectation.  A time of “not yet.” But even into the growing darkness and uncertainty of our days, it is a time for the proclamation of hope. The light will return. God will fulfill the promise of holy presence. We are not alone. Thanks be to God.

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. 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 Christmas 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 2022 and beyond. Thank you!
