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 and works 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 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 joint
events. Last year the usual jointly sponsored Spring and Autumn events for the business community were on hold due to staffing changes. However, we hope to organize an autumn event this year now that St Cuthbert's new Minister, the Rev Peter Sutton, and WPCS's new Chaplain to Edinburgh City Centre, Andrew Gregg, are in post. businesss matters too expect to have completed their reassessment following the loss of their Executive Director due to a significant drop in donations in the past financial year.

soul space, held on the first Wednesday of the month, has completed its theme for 2017/18 which was taken from Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To Everything there is a Season". The new theme for 2018/19 will be announced prior to its return in September.

McCrae's Battalion Trust: A Service will be held in St Cuthbert's Church on Sunday 1 July to mark the end of the WW1 centeneries at 11am. At the end of the service, a poppy wreath in memory of those who died will be uplifted and piped out of the church. Those attending the service are invited to follow the wreath bearer and piper up Lothian Road to the McCrae's Battalion plaque on the steps of the Usher Hall in McCrae's Place where the wreath will be placed and dedicated.

OASIS continues to regularly offer times of worship through the week when a few minutes peace and reflection in the beauty of St Cuthbert's is provided, notably at the Tuesday 1pm Healing Service.
