UKirk Collegiate MinistryUKirk Logo

UKirk Pizza OutingUKirk Williamsburg is a PC(USA) college fellowship based out of Williamsburg Presbyterian Church.  UKirk Williamsburg welcomes all college students who are seeking to find a “second home” during their years at the College of William & Mary, Christopher Newport University, Thomas Nelson Community College or other institutions of higher learning.  Check out the Facebook group UKirk Williamsburg to stay up to date on the latest happenings!

  • On Sunday mornings, you'll find us at both the 9:30 and 11:00 services seated in the balcony in the pews at the top of the stairwell.
  • On Wednesday nights, you'll find us downstairs in the UKirk Room (just follow the UKirk Williamsburg signs) from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.  We eat a delicious home-cooked meal provided by members of the congregation, followed by a time of fellowship.  We do Bible studies, learn spiritual practices, listen and interact with guest speakers, or just have a night of fun by carving pumpkins or doing a cookout.

Pastor Rachel Hébert, Associate Pastor of Community Care, will answer any additional questions or information you might wish.  Or, you just might run into her on the W&M campus at the Daily Grind holding Office Hours each week for students to buy them a cup of coffee!
