In the heart of Edinburgh there is a bookshop that is independent, ecumenical and inclusive. We provide spiritual, pastoral and theological resources for people throughout Scotland and beyond. We also stock a wide range of cards, gifts and church supplies. Cornerstone has a welcoming atmosphere with space to browse in peaceful surroundings and is run by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers who aim to provide a friendly and knowledgeable service.

New books come into the shop every day. Please visit or contact us to find out about the large variety of titles we have in stock. We can also order books for you and are happy to post items if you cannot get to us to pick up your order.

If you know us already we hope you will come back and see us soon. If you haven’t yet visited us, we look forward to welcoming you to Cornerstone.
