Life at Terra Berkshires
Tribes & People

Join Us As We Build Authentic Community

When Christ called us to Himself, He also called us to a new community. At Terra Nova, we live out that reality in the context of small group communities that we call Tribes. It is in this setting that we can really get to know others and be known by others.

Our goal is to launch a new church and we begin by planting groups of 10-15 people throughout the Berkshires. We will gather in homes twice a month to do life together with presence, truth and grace. Currently, we gather those Tribes for collective worship and teaching every other Sunday. We are planning to begin gathering weekly for worship in the Fall of 2017. You can see our planned timeline here

Join us by signing up for a Tribe below, or email Pastor Paul Gordon if you have more questions.
