Like many other local services, the King’s Christmas Trees project had to take a pause across 2020 due to the disruptions and restrictions of the Coronavirus pandemic. As we returned to ‘normal’ at the Jericho Road Project, we took stock of our resource, staff capacity and our project objectives. With these in mind, we believe the King’s Christmas Trees project, although a wonderful addition to our Christmas, has come to a natural end.
Therefore, we have made the sad and tough decision to permanently close King’s Christmas Trees. But as we do so, we want to thank everyone who has purchased a tree, donated or volunteered across the years – we are so appreciative of your support!
We will still be doing as much as we can to support those in our community who are struggling, including continuing to run The Feast on a weekly basis.
We know that for many, buying a King’s Christmas Tree was more than just a Christmas tradition; it was knowing that buying a tree meant buying multiple hot meals for the most vulnerable people in our community. The good news is you’re still able to – but unfortunately it’ll be without a tree!
If you would still like to make a Christmas contribution to The Feast, you can do so via our JustGiving page.

From everyone here at King's Christmas Trees, The Feast and King's Church London... Thank you, and have a very Merry Christmas!
