Building a diverse church
serving the communities of London
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, through the Big Red Box project.

King's Christmas Trees 10 Years

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 goes to the Jericho Road Project which has been helping rough sleepers and housing vulnerable people in South East London for 17 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 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. For some of us, it will simply be buying one item of food to go in a box, for others it will be in buying the food for an entire 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!

Pick up a flat-pack Big Red Box (if you want to fill a whole one). Boxes are available from King's Church London sites from Sunday 11 November.

Full boxes or individual items from the list should be brought to any of the King’s Church London sites from Sunday 18 November up to and including Sunday 9 December.
