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 wellbeing 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 Wednesday of each month (September-June and Holy Week, excluding 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.
