About Metro Community

Metro Community is a group of individuals from all levels of society learning to do life together. We seek God, pursue truth, in an atmosphere of love, where judgment is left at the door.


At our core we believe in the power of relationship, because every person is worthy of being known. We try to live in relationship by encouraging one another to operate by a common set of values: dignity, safety, respect, and acceptance.


Join our Coldest Night of the Year Walk to directly benefit and come alongside the most vulnerable and excluded of the Okanagan Valley!


Help us live out our vision of being a faith community where the most vulnerable from all walks of life are held at our centre so that:

  • Restoration
  • Wholeness
  • Authenticity
  • Togetherness

takes place within us and among us.
