The United & Presbyterian Campus Ministry, also known as YYC Campus Ministry, is the official Calgary-based Campus Ministry of the United Church of Canada and the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
Based out of Calgary's three largest post-secondary institutions, YYC Campus Ministry is a safe space for any and all young adults. We are a pluralistic community, focused on spirituality and multi-faith programming that advocates the inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community in all aspects of life and spirituality.
Our belief is that any and all should be able to benefit from an open, inclusive, and judgement-free community.
We hold a space for the spiritual-but-not-religious and for people on the margins of Christianity. Non-dogmatic, contemplative, experimental, and social-justice oriented, we honour all aspects of the human condition - the mind, body, and spirit. We are grounded in a liberal understanding of the Christian tradition and seek to affirm people of any, or of no particular, faith tradition. Our ministry has been useful to people of all orientations, backgrounds, and upbringings.
The Campus Ministry focuses on creating community and acceptance through a variety of programming from weekly drum circles on each campus to Lunch & Learns aimed at bringing together diverse populations and monthly Contemplative Worship Services.
