Psalm 122 T-shirt Fundraiser

Heathered blue T-shirt with text of Psalm 122:6 on the back.SECOND CHANCE to get your online exclusive Psalm 122 T-shirt. Quite a few people contacted us that they had missed the sale deadline. So we've relaunched the fundraiser. These shirts and hoodies are not available anywhere else right now, not even in Jerusalem. Fundraiser ends  May 1.

Visit Bonfire.com, our T-shirt printing partner, to order.

Proceeds go toward maintenance of the historic Christ Church building, which was built through the 1840s and consecrated in 1849. It takes a lot of work to keep the building looking fresh and ready to host worshipers.

Many thanks to those of you who bought in April. Don't forget to actually pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the surrounding nations of the Middle East. Blessings.

Our Liturgies

The following links will take you to the liturgies we use for worship throughout the year. We encourage you to download the PDFs to enjoy them at home, in your own congregation, or when you come to worship with us in the Old City of Jerusalem.


It's easy to find Christ Church, Jerusalem, as we're just 200 metres from the Jaffa Gate of the Old City. As you walk through the Jaffa Gate, bear to the right and up the slight incline with David's Tower to your right. You'll see the gated entrance to the Christ Church compound on your left. You can also use Google Maps to find us by entering your own start point or current location and then click "get directions".

Our contact details are also at the bottom of this page should you need to reach us, and you can also find us via our Facebook page.

If you want to stay very locally, you're welcome to book accommodation with us at the Christ Church Guest House or even pop in for a speciality coffee, tea or herbal infusion at our wonderful Coffee Shop and enjoy the peaceful surroundings in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Old City.

It'll be great to see you soon.

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
