Frequently Asked Questions


Who can get married at UPC?

University Presbyterian Church understands marriage to be a gift for people of all faith traditions and no religious affiliation, all sexual orientations, gender identities, races, ethnicities, and cultures.

The Session policy for weddings states that the Sanctuary shall be used only for weddings of active members, family of active members, and students who have been active in the Presbyterian Campus Ministry. In some circumstances, the pastor is granted discretion to accommodate applicants who do not meet these requirements.


What spaces are available for weddings?

Our Sanctuary is our primary location for weddings.

Wedding ceremonies can also be held in the Anne McClamroch McFall Memorial Garden, with Vance Barron Hall used as a rain plan. The garden can accommodate approximately 30 chairs for guests.


Are there any dates that are not available for weddings?

Weddings are not scheduled on the weekends of UNC home football games. UPC also reserves the right to block off certain weekends based upon our church calendar.
