Tea Bar

The ‘Tea Bar‘ started going out onto the streets in May 1998 after the closing of the St Andrews drop-in centre on London Road.

One purpose of the ‘Candle‘, as it was then called, was to reduce the amount of man power required in preparing and serving food in order to free people up to talk to our guests.

In practice we generally never have enough volunteers, so if you’re interested!

We always say that once a month would help.



In September 2006 we replaced the ageing “Candle” with a professional catering trailer.


Psalm 22 verse [26] The poor will eat and be satisfied. All who seek the LORD will praise him. Their hearts will rejoice with everlasting joy. [27] The whole earth will acknowledge the LORD and return to him.
