you work in Edinburgh's City Centre?
If you do we at OASIS may be of interest to you.
OASIS is a service of St Cuthberts 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.
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 mission is fivefold:
first, to listen and respond promptly to your suggestions for activities or requests for support;
second, to foster a sense
of community in the often hectic, pressured world
that is the business and office environment;
third,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;
fourth, 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;
fifth, to provide opportunities for spiritual exploration,
this in eg our times of 'soul space'.

the services of OASIS are at your disposal.
