We are an Intentional Christian community in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood, and housed in the parsonage (AKA the 'Nidge) of Immanuel Lutheran Church. The Community of The Holy Trinity is a community centered around the life of prayer seeking to offer support and hospitality to artists, social activists and social workers, and to offer group and individual spiritual direction as we walk along side brother's and sisters in Christ on the journey of faith.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
