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 are ordinary people who share a love for Jesus and three joyful pursuits: 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 simplicity are listening practices. The contemplative way is renewing and receptive—a leaning in to God’s presence, so that together we can respond to what God is doing in the world and in us. Our prayer is that intimate listening leads to compassionate action.
