All and y'all are welcome here

UKirk, or "university church," is a community dedicated to experiencing Christ on Nashville campuses through worship, service, and fellowship. We love to study scripture, ask hard questions, break bread, play, pray, and laugh together, and to extend the love of Christ to our neighbors.


We have a nearly nine-decades long history

here in Nashville as a non-profit of the local Presbyterian churches (PCUSA and CPC). UKirk is an official student organization at both Vanderbilt and Belmont.

We welcome any and all who would like to join us, valuing diversity when it comes to belief, perspective, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, class, and all other forms of difference. Everyone is beloved, made in the image of God.


All and y'all are welcome here.

What is UKirk?


UKirk is a place and time where all students and seekers can be at home.

Whether you're a lifelong Presbyterian, aren't sure what that means, or even have real doubts about the church, you are welcome to join us in worship, which includes a meal, every Thursday night during the school year.


Showing love for our neighbors is one way of connecting with God in daily life. UKirk takes part in service, offerings, and other forms of community engagement together, and we gratefully receive the service and generosity of our supporting churches, too.


Our weekly fellowship is really what makes us UKirk. We want to share life, and do life, together, as a community. Join us for coffee or a meal. See the events tab above or follow us on Instagram for more information.
