Loving Jesus through a shared life of worship, prayer and care of souls

Trinity Lakeside is a peaceful, contemplative community in north Texas where weary souls can find renewal and rest in Jesus. We share three common joys: worship, prayer and care of souls–practices which nurture relationship with God and one another in Christ, and form us for life and mission.

Why contemplative? We live in a noisy world. Practices like prayer and worship, silence and slowing are listening practices. The contemplative way is restful and receptive—a leaning in to God’s presence, so we can respond to what he is doing in the world and in us. Our prayer is that intimate listening leads to compassionate action.
