UKirk literally means “University Church.” We are a welcoming community for students that explores what it means to receive and share divine love, and to live out our faith in a complex world. People of all races, classes, abilities, genders, and sexual orientations are affirmed and celebrated. While we are centered in a Christian tradition, we welcome those who have questions, doubts, and diverse beliefs. We strive to be a brave space for friendship, growth, and community building. We eat together, learn together, listen and laugh together, and do life together. These values are also reflected in our community for graduate students and young professionals, 20/30 CreW.

UKirk is based out of Westminster Presbyterian Church (on Rugby Rd., next to Beta Bridge) and also has a home at Common Grounds (the white building on the corner of Gordon and Rugby Rd.).

UKirk@UVA is part of a network of UKirk communities. To learn more UKirk or to contact other UKirk ministries, please visit the UKirk website.
