The Metropolis of Chios, Psara and Oinouses, also Metropolis of Chios, (Gr:Χίος), is one of the metropolises of the New Lands in Greece that are within the jurisdiction of the Church of Constantinople but de facto are administered for practical reasons as part of the Church of Greece under an agreement between the churches of Athens and Constantinople. The metropolis is located among the islands off the coast of Turkey.

The metropolis manages many of oldest Christian monuments, dating as early as the year 993, that adorn the island of Chios, including the UNESCO protected site of Nea Moni.
