Welcome to Trinity by the Sea


As members of the Body of Christ, we seek to be a spiritual and charitable resource of God’s love in our community.

A parish of the Diocese of West Texas for Mustang and N. Padre Islands. The Rt. Rev. Gary Lillibridge and The Rt. Rev. David Reed, Bishops; The Rev. Jennifer Brooke-Davidson, Suffragan Bishop-Elect; The Rev. J. James Derkits, Rector

Life After Harvey

We took a bit hit from Harvey, but we survived! 


Days after Harvey hit, we opened the church for prayer. Each day since, we have gathered at 8 a.m. to say daily devotions before getting on with our day’s work. We only missed one Sunday, and had our first Post-Harvey Eucharist  on Sunday Sept 3rd at 9 and 11. Trinity has been working with volunteer groups, government, and our diocese to help lead the way forward to recovery. We need your help! Visit our diocesan website to see how you can volunteer. You can also donate there, or send a check to PO Box 346, Port Aransas, TX, 78373 to donate directly to Trinity and our relief efforts. More soon, just know we are open for worship and so much more!

Welcome One and All!

Trinity Sunday is June 11, and we will celebrate with Church on the Beach at 11 a.m. at Marker number 2, between the Horace Caldwell Pier and G Street.

We will serve hot dogs after the service so plan to stay a while!

Please bring a chair to sit in, unless you prefer to sit in the sand. We are requesting that dogs be left at home, since we had a dog fight (literally) at the last service.

(the 9 a.m. service will be in the sanctuary at Trinity, 433 Trojan St.)
