Weekly Gatherings UKirk meets every Thursday at 6:00 at the UKirk House (449 Patterson St.) during the Fall and Spring Semester. Our gatherings always include dinner, and following dinner something in-between worship, discussion, art, and prayer. Every week we try to do something a little different as we explore the variety of ways in which we connect with God.
