Since 1873 this beautiful little church has played an important role in the community of Metchosin, B.C. While regular services are now held in a new location the congregation maintain the original church for special services as well as the grounds of this historical site.
It is a glorious sight when the fawn lilies carpet the grounds of the churchyard. I was thrilled to find that the annual bloom was in full display when we were visiting nearby. My sister-in-law, who is a member of the church says the men, who volunteer to maintain the property are given strict instructions not to mow while the lilies are in bloom. I am so very glad they follow instructions lest I and the surrounding community miss this wonderful display.
