Christmas at King's - What a Beautiful Name
One of the things we love to do at King's is celebrate Christmas in a big way, and you’re invited to join us!

We'd love you to come along to our Carol services or our Family Christmas Services, and we’d like everyone to bring someone along. You can also help a homeless person by buying a King’s Christmas Tree or help provide food to people who need it most this Christmas, by getting involved in the Big Red Box project.

King's Christmas Trees

King's Christmas Trees

Buy a real Christmas tree and help a homeless person this Christmas by buying through KING'S CHRISTMAS TREES.

All the profits go to the Jericho Road Project which has been helping rough sleepers and housing vulnerable people in South East London for over 10 years.

You can order online or by phone and arrange to collect your tree or have it delivered. For more details visit

Big Red Box

Big Red Box

This Christmas we are again providing boxes of food for the neediest families and individuals in our local community through our BIG RED BOX initiative. We are distributing most boxes through Social Services Family Support teams.

We would love everyone to be involved in this, whether it's ONE ITEM, ONE BAG or ONE BOX.

Download our shopping list. You can buy one or a few items, get it all yourself, or you can join with others: family, friends, work colleagues, classmates, your community group – you choose!

If you want to fill a whole Big Red Box, you can pick up a flat-pack box from any King's Church London site from Sunday 12 November. But you're free to bring your items in shoppng bags if that's easiest for your you.

Full boxes, bags of items or individual items from the list should be brought to any of the King’s Church London sites from Sunday 19 November, up to and including Sunday 10 December.
