All and y'all are welcome here

UKirk, meaning "university church," is a community dedicated to experiencing Christ on Nashville campuses through worship, service, and fellowship. We gather often over food, the study of scripture, asking hard questions, music, also food, and loving our neighbors, prayers, food, high fives, and great laughter.


We have an over eight decades long history

here in Nashville, as a non-profit of the local Presbyterian churches. We are official student organizations at Vanderbilt and Belmont, and

we welcome all and any who'd like to join us, regardless of belief, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, status... or anything else!

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, we welcome all who join us in worship, which includes a meal on Thursday nights... even when we meet online!


Cultivating an awareness of our neighbors is one way of connecting with God in daily life. Through local serving opportunities, receiving offerings, and further understanding the 

church universal, UKirk encourages everyone to experience both giving and receiving faithful Christian service.


Our weekly fellowship is really what makes us... "UKirk"... Like our funny Scottish name, meaning University Church #ukirk, implies: 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
