I got lost! When & Where do you meet at the University of Calgary Campus?

If you’ve tried to find us in the past and gotten lost, we’re sorry! Because we meet on a university campus we tend to bounce around. Currently, we meet in ST 147 at 10:45 am.

Because we can be hard to pin down, we use the UChurch App weekly to communicate. Please download and use it so you don’t lose track of us! We’d love to see you.

During the summer months or long breaks such as Christmas, we’re usually found in other places. We love ‘being family’ together - which often means church in the park, summer BBQs, camping trips, or impromptu skating parties in lieu of a more traditional Sunday.

Why do you meet on the U of C Campus?

Great question! Check out UChurch 101’s brief History for that one.

What does a typical Sunday at UChurch look like?

We don’t have a typical Sunday! We consider our Sunday celebrations to be family gatherings - and that means sometimes they can feel messy. Kids are always welcome, the style is casual, and we love to build relationships with one another. The structure may change on any given Sunday, depending on where God is leading our community.

Are there kids' programmes at UChurch?

Yes, absolutely! Our kids sometimes outnumber our grownups! Our current kids church rooms are ST 126, 127, 128 & 130. More drop off and pick up info is available if you come chat with us on Sundays.

We also value having our kids receive the same message God is speaking to our church family. On these Sundays, there is no formal kids program, but kids are welcome to stay in the service. We call these ‘Family Sundays’ and they happen roughly once a month!

Please check out Kids in UChurch 101 if you want to know more

Where do I park?

Park in Lot 21. More info is available on the App.

I parked in Lot 21 and still got a parking ticket! What do I do?

Please email a photo of your ticket to info@uchurch.ca along with your information, and we’ll get back to you.

Where is your office?

UChurch doesn’t have a central office. Our mailing address can be found in our contact page.

What denomination is UChurch?

We’re a part of and receive oversight Every Nation Ministries (EN). Since its establishment in 1994, EN is now in over 80 nations. EN provides relational support and accountability to local churches; emphasize church planting, campus ministry, and world missions.

If you’re curious about what we believe in, check out our What We Believe section.

Is there leadership at UChurch? Who's the Pastor?

We have amazing pastors, as well as a pastoral leadership & oversight team. Check out the Team section in UChurch 101 to get to know them!

Is UChurch just for students?

Nope! UChurch was originally started by students, but as we have continued to grow up, so have our students. We have plenty of families and love being a multigenerational community.

What are your core doctrinal beliefs?

Does UChurch ever do baptisms/baby dedications?

We love celebrating both of these things, we just don’t do it every Sunday! (There aren’t too many baptism tubs on campus). If this is something you’re interested in please email info@uchurch.ca or talk to us on a Sunday morning.

How can I sign up to help out?

If serving is something that’s on your heart, please come talk to us on a Sunday. (Some potential areas include kids ministry, set-up, worship, or multimedia).

I keep hearing about Fatherheart Ministries - what is it?

Our church loves being connected to the broader body of Christ. We have developed a close relationship with Fatherheart Ministries in particular - please read more about that connection, and how you can get involved in UChurch 101: Fatherheart.

Have a question that's not answered here?

If you have a question that isn't answered here, you can always ask a facilitator on a Sunday gathering or send your questions to info@uchurch.ca and we'll get back to you.
