What To Expect At UCC.
At University Christian, we focus on common ground. You’ll find us to be refreshingly open-minded, rather than rigidly dogmatic.
We have a vision that the world might be radically changed if we were truly able to live into the people we were created to be – and we think that God has big plans to bring restoration, hope, and healing into the world through people that the world might not recognize as the typical leaders.
Our facilities are fully wheelchair accessible, and we offer enhanced audio devices for our services.
Music is a strong and vital part of our worship. Our beautiful sanctuary is acoustically exceptional, highlighting the soaring voices, talented musicians, and majestic pipe organ.
Our Chancel Choir is comprised of volunteers and UT music students. The choir sings a wide variety of music including major works, great classic anthems, and contemporary songs. Our Handbell Choir rings arrangements of beloved hymns and often accompanies the Chancel Choir. Both choirs are open to all with no audition required.
We think it’s vitally important to involve our younger members at every age. That’s why our Sunday service includes a children’s moment, with an important lesson on God’s love just for the kids.
There’s childcare available during the service, and if you’d rather stay with your young ones, our sanctuary offers glider chairs.
For older children, we have an active youth group that includes fundraising work, mission trips, summer camp, vacation Bible school, as well as fun outings and lock-ins.
With its nods to the Gothic architecture of the great cathedrals of Europe, yet centrally located in the heart of Austin, directly across from The University Of Texas’ Littlefield Fountain and Tower, the Sanctuary of University Christian Church offers a timeless and graceful setting for weddings.
The Sanctuary features a center aisle and stained glass windows on either side of a high, open nave, with seating for up to 275 guests.
Our Chapel offers a more intimate, but no less timeless, setting for smaller weddings. It also has a center aisle and seats up to 40 guests.
