FirmFoundation is a registered charity which helps relieve the immediate suffering of the homeless, while working with them to find a practical and sustainable solution to their needs. Including King’s Church, there are eight churches in Harrow actively involved in running the work of FirmFoundation.
The ethos of FirmFoundation is to demonstrate God’s love for humanity in a practical, Christian way to those who are homeless, vulnerably housed or at risk of becoming homeless. FirmFoundation values the image of God in all people and respect the beliefs and cultures of all whom we come into contact with.
FirmFoundation looks to provide ongoing care and provision for the poor and homeless throughout the year, and ran a fourth winter night shelter this year from January to end of March at the Welldon Centre in central Harrow. Each evening the shelter was able to offer hot meals and overnight shelter 10 men who were homeless.

King’s has offered free English language classes in Harrow in different venues on a weekly basis, during term time, since 2003. Trained and skilled volunteer teachers and helpers have taught these classes. The King’s English classes have allowed us to serve and help many different members of the community from a wide variety of nations. Currently we offer a class on Monday afternoons, 1-3pm (during term time) in South Harrow.
King’s Church has recently joined with seven other churches in South Harrow to offer Healing on the Street on a regular basis on Saturday mornings from 11am to 1pm. When Jesus was on earth he healed the sick wherever he went. Healing on the Streets offers prayer for healing which Jesus encourages us to do; we are ready to pray with anyone who is sick, unwell or suffering from any injury (or any other personal need) because we believe that God loves us and can heal us from any sickness.

As a Church we also support the Harrow Street Pastors and Harrow Food Bank initiatives.
