Anglican Contemplative Community

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

Our Joy

Trinity Lakeside is a Christian community in north Texas devoted to a shared life of worship, prayer and care of souls. Our joy is living and teaching the more contemplative side of the spiritual life. We welcome people to the Abbey for contemplative worship and prayer, seasonal day retreats, soul care groups and spiritual direction—practices which deepen our relationship with God and one another and form us for life and mission.

Soul Care

Join us for an Advent Day Retreat: Saturday, December 3, 2022, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. See the Retreat page for details.

Looking to meet with a trained Spiritual Director? Rev. Markene offers a pastoral, listening presence, thoughtful questions and space for reflecting and responding to God’s presence. See the Spiritual Direction page.

The last few years have brought disruption and trauma of all kinds. New Hope groups are a safe space for finding healing from heart wounds through storytelling, with the story of Scripture providing the framework. This group will not only help you work through your own heart wounds, it will equip you to be present to others who experience them. See the Care page for more.


Worship with us Sundays at 10:00 am: Join us weekly at the Abbey (address below) for a contemplative service of Holy Communion. See the Worship page for details.

In gratitude for our Second Anniversary as a missional community, we are raising funds for a Stations of the Cross installation on the Abbey grounds. We pray this will be a means of prayer and reflection for many years. To make your gift, see the GIVE page.


The Second Saturday of each month is an opportunity to participate in the rhythms of monastic life. Join us for Ora and Labora, a day of Prayer and Work at the Abbey. This is a come and go event, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. See the Pray page for details.

Join us daily in Praying the Hours of Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer from wherever you are. See the Pray page for details and prayer resources.
