We are Open, with slightly reduced hours and some precautionary restrictions in place.

Our current opening times are, Monday – Saturday 11.00am-5.00pm

It will be lovely to see you all again, and if you don’t want to come into the shop we are happy to post books out. Please contact us via telephone, 0131 229 3776 or email, edinburgh@cornerstonebooks.org.uk and we will be happy to help.


  1. Dear Anna and Amanda
    I think in these circumstances it is entirely understandable that at present you have to shut up shop.
    Please cancel my Church Times until further notice rather than having a big pile up of Church times, when the Shop eventually reopens.
    I can manage without the Church Times at present, I think it is more important at present to pray that fill my mind with a lot of information and news.
    With thanks for all your good service.
    Keeping you both and your families in my ongoing thoughts and prayers

      Dear Jonathan,
      I have cancelled your Church times subscription. We shall see you when this is all over.
      Best wishes,

  2. Dear Anna and Amanda,
    When I passed the shop last Saturday, a sign mentioned that you could still take orders for books. Is that still the case? And if so, what are the arrangements for delivery or collection?
    Many thanks and best wishes,

      Hi Ben,
      Unfortunately we are no longer able to do that. With the church and grounds closed up we are unable to accept deliveries so have had to completely close.
      We will be back as soon as possible.
      Best wishes,

    My son has started a website to support small businesses and their cash flow crises.


    Would you like me to add Cornerstone? If so, perhaps you could let me know if you have a mechanism for regulars to buy a Cornerstone voucher online so we can redeem it later. Also if you’re sending out delievries by post? Thanks and best wishes to everyone at Cornerstone, you do a great job of keeping us theologically informed! Jenny, St Columba’s by the Castle

      Hi Jenny,
      Both Amanda and I are on furlough so can’t work, unfortunately this means that we cannot put any sales through, not even vouchers. I have come off furlough as there were some tasks that couldn’t be left any longer but will be re-furloughed from tomorrow.
      Thank you for thinking of us and we look forward to seeing you when we reopen.
      Best wishes,

  4. Hi Anna and Amanda,

    I was just wondering with the slight easing of lockdown if you plan to reopen and/or start taking book orders remotely,

    Keep safe and well,
