The Vision for Corporation Road Presbyterian Church, now known as Community House Eton Road

The Rev. Cyril Summers, a minister of the Church and a pacifist who was a conscientious objector in the Second World War; he was a local councillor and became a mayor of the City.

His inspired vision led to the design and commissioning of a building which, while being a ‘House of God’, would be a home for the whole community, Christian or not.
The existing church on Corporation Road had to be demolished due to structural damage. Cyril and the congregation were faced with
the possibility of having no building, the Church was compelled to ask many questions concerning the nature and purpose of the church.

Cyril felt that his whole life up to that point had been in preparation for the task that lay ahead.
