In the first part of this paper we investigate four types of convergence of sequences of functions in metric spaces which preserve continuity. Besides a consideration of locally, quasi and continuously uniform convergence, we introduce the notion of semi uniform convergence. We discuss how all types of convergence are related both to each other and to pointwise convergence, and illustrate their behavior by examples. Moreover, we show how some of the types of convergence can be used to characterize compactness of the domains the functions under consideration live in. In the second part we investigate sequences of composition operators in the space \(BV\) of functions of bounded variation in the sense of Jordan. We give criteria under which such sequences converge locally uniformly and semi uniformly and present a new and short proof for the fact that composition operators which map the space \(BV\) into itself are automatically continuous.
