Christ's Hospital of Abingdon is a charity with a long history, based in Abingdon, England.

Christ's Hospital was established in 1553 by royal charter under the full name of the Master and Governors of the Hospital of Christ of Abingdon. Sir John Mason, an Elizabethan diplomat, served as the first Master from 1553 to 1566. The charity supported almshouses in Abingdon. Sampson Strong decorated the hall with portraits of founders, benefactors and former governors.

The charity has been involved with education, educating Abingdon boys from 1608 until 1870. There has been a close connection with Abingdon School since 1870. Christ's Hospital also established Albert Park in northwest Abingdon (west of Abingdon School) during the 1860s on the site of the former Conduit Field.

The current charity is based at 1 Old Station Road in Abingdon (Registered Charity Number 205112).
