Something New at the Gift Shop
Welcome to the Christ Church Gift Shop Page. Our shop offers a wide variety of merchandise from religious and secular. Most important, all of our profits go to those in need, within our Alexandria community and across the world.
The Rev. Pierce Klemmt's beautifully handcrafted mahogany tea table sold at the November Birthday Bash! The money received for his generous donation has helped our local community, as well as the Mengo Hospital, in Nigeria. We are most appreciative to Rev. Klemmt for using his great talent to support our mission of outrich.
History & Purpose
The Gift Shop is dedicated to supporting outreach and mission at Christ Church. Volunteers work to keep the shop well stocked, clean, and inviting to all.
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.
Now, twice a year volunteers attend the Philadelphia Show to buy for the shop. For two days, after visiting more than 1,000 vendors, they decide on new merchandise. Those shopping at the Gift Shop will find a wide variety of items perfect for weddings, birthdays, graduation, 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 party introducing Christmas gift items and decorations. Look for this year's celebration in the Meade Room on November 6.

- The Campagna Center – Youth Services
- Carpenter’s Shelter
- Christ Church Child Project
