Grace Church: an Episcopal Community in the Southern Berkshires creatively tells the story of our Christian faith outside the walls of a church building that have traditionally shaped the narrative. On Sundays we gather to worship in a moveable, pop-up space at Crissey Farm, 426 Stockbridge Rd., Great Barrington. You may have to work to find us, but when you do you are welcomed into an open community who draws from a rich tradition of beautiful music, ancient stories, and inclusive Episcopal liturgy. We welcome people at every stage of their journey toward the radical mystery of God's love. Everyone is invited to come and see. Together we actively explore how to build a deep spiritual life that is actively involved in the reconciling love of Christ in the community and in the world. 

Today, Grace Church tells the story of our Christian faith in a new setting, a bright and accessible reception hall located at Crissey Farm, 426 Stockbridge Rd. in Great Barrington MA. The place we worship is accessible for all. Following worship there is time for gathering for conversation and good food. Children of all ages are welcome. We offer them a time of learning during the worship with space to move and express their joy. Children are always welcome to worship with their families or choose to go upstairs for a time planned just for them. 

On Tuesdays we gather for Bible study at 7:00 PM; Wednesdays, we offer an informal time of worship at noon with Eucharist and healing, but without music. An hour of Centering Prayer is offered on Thursdays at 5:00 PM, where you are offered a time of silence and reflection, allowing your body, mind, and spirit to be refreshed and restored. These offering are held at the Grace Church Chapel and Office at 67 State Rd. in Great Barrington MA.

Sacred Ground Race Dialogue Circles

Racial Reconciliation
Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground is dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race, racism, and whiteness while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.

Sacred Ground is a resource coming out of Becoming Beloved Community, The Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. This series is especially designed to help white people talk with other white people, while being open to all racial/ethnic groups. Participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day – all while grounded in our call to faith, hope and love.
