About University Presbyterian Church
You have found your way to the website of an historic and dynamic Church. University Presbyterian Church has worshiped and served Jesus Christ from our location near the University of Texas for 125 years. We are a blessedly diverse collection of believers who have a heart for this City and for the students who flow by our campus each day. We have a significant ministry to the homeless and hungry through our UPLift assistance program on Tuesday mornings and the Micah 6 Food Pantry on Thursday and Saturday. And as we celebrate our 125th anniversary in 2017, we are committed to live together in the way of Jesus Christ.
So we invite you to explore this site and catch a glimpse of the life and ministry of UPC. And I invite you to join us for worship on Sunday morning at 11 a.m. and hear one of the most inspiring choirs in our city. You will experience a warm welcome, find a generous congregation, and most importantly, a home where you can join us in serving the least of these in our community and world.
Empowered by God’s Spirit, we follow Jesus Christ in attitude, action, and love, as disciples and apostles who are equipped and sent to represent God’s reign in the world through worship, service and community.
Located in the heart of beautiful Austin, Texas, near the University of Texas campus, we provide a vibrant ministry and spiritual home for people searching for:
- a warm, welcoming, musically rich worship experience
- a tradition that is vibrant, alive, rambunctiously reverent
- a safe place to explore your faith
- food for the mind as well as the spirit
- a diverse community coming together in the spirit of God’s love, devotion, and forgiveness
- opportunities to ease the needs of the world
The members and staff of University Presbyterian Church invite you to join us in our faith journey as we wrestle with and clarify our beliefs, and demonstrate our commitment in serving the needs of our community and the world.
