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.

This month's soul space event is, as usual, on the first Wednesday of the month and continues to follow the overall theme for 2017/18 taken from Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To Everything there is a Season". On Wednesday 4 April the reflection will be on 'Easter' and on Wednesday 2nd May 'Ascension'.
soul space has proved to be especially valued by several of those who work in local businesses. These occur on the 1st Wednesday of each month (except June, July, August and January) with the church open from 12.30pm - 2pm and from 5pm - 7pm with short led reflections at 1pm and 6pm.

If you are free early in the morning of Wednesday 25 April and you are interested in hearing what is being done to help the homeless people in Edinburgh and feel you or your business might be able to help you are warmly invited to attend a Business Breakfast on Homelessness. The venue is the new Cornerstone Centre at St John's, Princes Street, and the timing of the breakfast will be 0745 for 0800. Further details here.
Then on Sunday 29th April in St Cuthbert's Church at 2pm a new feature length documentary has its Scottish premiere. Bill Viola: The Road to St Paul's is a powerful, moving portrait of the world's most influential video artist and his wife and close collaborator, Kira Perov. Further details here.
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.
OASIS now has a Facebook presence here. Please connect with us through Facebook to get more information about forthcoming events. OASIS has also set up a new web presence at http://www.st-cuthberts.net/oasis.php.
Peter is available to all in the business community (of any faith or none) who would want to talk with someone and is happy to Be There.
