About the Christ Church Gift Shop

Welcome to the Christ Church Gift Shop Page.  Our shop offers a wide variety of merchandise from religious to secular.  Most importantly, all of our profits go to those in need, within our Alexandria community and across the world.

The first gift shop at Christ Church was created in 1915 strictly for souvenir sales. It took on a new life in November 1987, coinciding with the building of the new parish house.

Twice a year volunteers attend a gift show in Philadelphia to buy for the shop. After visiting more than 1,000 vendors, they select new merchandise. Those shopping at the Gift Shop will find a wide variety of items perfect for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, and holidays. There is a wonderful selection of Bibles, prayer books, crosses and religious and secular jewelry.

Yearly the gift shop celebrates its birthday with a Christmas Market, introducing Christmas gift items and decorations, as well as jewelry, scarves, and other gift ideas.  The event also provides visitors an opportunity to sample our jams, jellies, soups, and caramels.

Some of the beneficiaries of our fundraising are:

  • ALIVE! 
  • The Campagna Center – Head Start and New Neighbors
  • Carpenter’s Shelter 
  • Christ Church Child Project 
  • Community Lodgings 
  • Lazarus Ministry 
  • Meals on Wheels 
  • Our Little Roses 
  • Christ Church Refugee Program
  • Domestic Violence Program
