West Alabama UKirk is a campus ministry for the students of the University of West Alabama and other college students in our area.
Located at the Common Grounds Coffee Shop across the street from Lyon Hall, we invite you to Faith and Film night on Sunday evenings during the fall and spring semesters. We also have fun gatherings like Super Bowl and Academy Awards watch parties, provide popsicles to the UWA Band during band camp, and other activities. We participate in local mission projects as well as college retreats.
UKirk is open to all people, places, and experiences, because collegiate ministry is a lot of things, and we just can't miss out on any of it!

UKirk (meaning University Church) is a network of ministries supported by the Presbyterian Church (USA) charged with reaching, loving, and teaching college students so that they may be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.
Collegiate ministry is a lot of things: it is inspiring, funky, hilarious, and weird. It is high-energy, world-changing, tear-jerking, life-altering. It is where students can pray, ask, respond, listen, laugh, cry, wonder, and be who God made them to be. It is for Jesus freaks, skeptics, Christians, atheists, doubters, and wanderers. It gives students a space for worship, questions, fears, anxieties, hopes, and dreams. It reminds us—whether or not we’re in college—that we are not alone, that we are not forgotten, that we are loved, that we matter. It’s where we, Christ’s body, are called to be. And so, we, the Church, will walk alongside students as they seek to understand Jesus. We will listen to the truth that they tell, which is wild, untamed, risky, and exhilarating, while also teaching and offering them our own understanding of who God is. Not only will we name God’s radical love for college students, but we will encourage a way of life proclaiming that God is on the move in the world, for the world, for all of us.
