Seeking to Help And Support All Working Locally

Surrounded by the pressures of business, people need an oasis of peace to survive. OASIS is the name we give to our ministry among the business community, offering a supportive Christian presence to people working locally. 

OASIS is a non-profit organisation serving the business community and exploring connections between business and spirituality. The organisation is sponsored by the Parish Church of St Cuthbert in conjunction with St John's Church and St Andrew's and St George's West Church who form the ecumenical grouping 'Edinburgh City Centre Churches TOGETHER'. 

OASIS also works in partnership with business matters and Work Place Chaplaincy Scotland in an organised and mutually supportive way. While each organisation maintains its own distinctive mission, purpose, ethos and approach, they work together to promote "well being" in the workplace by holding jointly branded events - to see what's coming up, check the What's On section of this page. 

St Cuthbert's offer regular times of worship during the week, when a few minutes peace and reflection in the beauty of St Cuthbert's is provided, notably at the short monthly First Tuesday 12pm-12:30pm Service of Reflection and Communion with the Ministry of prayer for healing offered immediately afterwards. Also the short Thursday 1pm 'Space for Lunchtime Prayers'.  

The monthly soul space events offers a time of peace, and reflection in the middle of the chaos of our lives. soul space is held on the first Wednesdayof each month (September-June and Holy Week, not January) with the church open at Lunchtime : 12.30pm - 2pm, and in the Evening : 5pm - 7pm. Short times of optional led relection : 1pm, 6pm. More details of the themes and dates for the current session, can be found HERE soul space also has a facebook page - - please check it out and like us !

OASIS works in partnership with the City Centre Workplace Chaplain Andy Gregg who is available as a chaplain to all who work in the City Centre.

To contact Andy, please e-mail or telephone 07834 748 129

More About OASIS

Do you work in or near Edinburgh's City Centre ?

If you do, we at OASIS may be of interest to you. OASIS is a service of St Cuthbert’s and the other city centre churches into the business community. Spearheaded by St Cuthbert's on Lothian Road, the kirk below the castle, this project started in the early 90's as the brainchild of a minister and a leading accountant.

OASIS comes to you in your world of work where you and other people invest so much time and energy.

So what do we do at OASIS ?

We offer a supportive presence to individuals of all faiths and none, to groups and to companies. We offer our professional services and make ourselves available as friends to any and everyone working in the area. Our aim is

  • To listen and respond promptly to your suggestions for activities or requests for support
  • To foster a sense of community in the often hectic, pressured world that is the business and office environment
  • To be of personal assistance to people of all faiths and none, by being there for anyone who would like to talk to one of us
  • To encourage everyone in the area – people with a church connection and people of other faiths and none - to understand and appreciate Christian values and to relate them to the workplace, this by addressing general "people issues", usually in lunchtime seminars
  • To provide opportunities for spiritual exploration, eg our times of soul space. Click here for details

One day we may be helping someone going through a personal crisis. The next day we may be organising a speaker on maintaining good relationships at work. And the next day we may be planning the hotly contested annual Inter-Office Quiz night.

Whatever the issue and whatever your situation, we will be there for you. And if we don't know the answer, we may be able to refer you to someone who does. Needless to say, you can count on us to care and to observe confidentiality.

In the meantime, until we have the pleasure of meeting you, if the going gets tough, do remember you can take time out in the quiet atmosphere of St Cuthbert's, St John's or St Andrew's & George's West. These churches and the services of OASIS are at your disposal.
