Building a diverse church
serving the communities of London

The Feast

Every Wednesday evening we provide free hot food, clothing, advice and friendship to up to 140 rough sleepers, people who are homeless/sleeping on friends’ couches and those who have accommodation but who are struggling. We aim to provide a place that allows people to help themselves move out of poverty.

The Feast meets every week at the Catford site, from 7.30-9.30pm, apart from August and a week or two at Christmas (when Crisis is open).

There is no charge for the soup, hot meal and pudding for all who come. In addition to the meal, emergency food packs and housing advice is provided – as well as fun and friendship. After the meal there is a short talk which includes an invitation to the Friday Support Group.

I was introduced to The Feast by a friend who is now in Australia and my week does not feel complete when I can’t go. I like actively doing something for people and The Feast provides an environment where you can get to know people, offer them a warm welcome and listen to them. Sharing food and conversation builds the community and gives people somewhere to be fed both physically and spiritually. It is a very special place. Jenny, Feast volunteer

We aim to make The Feast the safest place for the weakest person. It is an opportunity for people to step out of their poverty. Simon Allen, Jericho Road Project leader
Wonderful – If it weren't for the church I would be dead! Feast attendee
It’s my worship, my gratitude! Cooking helps my own recovery and my mental health – it helps keep me well. Yvonne, Feast volunteer
For me the Feast is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to people truly in need - physically, emotionally, perhaps spiritually - as Jesus did and as we are all called to. Feast volunteer
Given my background and the grace I have been shown, I need The Feast as much as it needs me! Feast volunteer
