We are asking for help to restore the bells at Christ Church Jerusalem. The Chimes were installed some 100 years ago, our eight Harrington tubular bells were silenced decades ago after restructuring the Rectory closed off the bell tower. Recently, by reaching through a small window, we discovered that the bells were still in tune as we tapped out “Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound.”
We are working with a firm in the UK to install an electronic system, hammers and remote keyboard that will enable us to once again ring out His praises at Jaffa Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.
While the bells and supports are in excellent condition, the tower needs some urgent renovation. The new electronic system and hammer, plus expert installation will be a $20,000.00. All gifts are tax deductible.
