Common Room is the outcome of a spectacular renovation of the historic sanctuary at Zion Lutheran Church of Pittsfield – one of the oldest Lutheran churches in New England.

Our vision for Common Room is to use our historic sanctuary to strengthen local nonprofits and neighbors.

As a community gathering space, Common Room is available for a range of activities and events, large or small, however seldom or frequently-occurring, and regardless of faith.

Amenities include 4,400 sq. ft. of open, beautifully-renovated and reconfigurable space with plenty of chairs and tables; universal access, air-conditioning, bright lighting, and a grand piano; and Common Room is adjacent to public parking and the Pittsfield Common, a seven-acre public park.
