Brian Selby, an Elder and founding member of Community House, Newport reads Rev. Cyril Summers' vision.

This is the story of a people without a House of God,
A people without a home,
Who, being homeless,
Began to build a home.
Not for themselves,
But for all who are homeless.
All communities need a centre,
A place of meeting,
And supposing it were a centre of compassion,
A centre of understanding,
A refuge of comfort,
A centre of happiness.
A place where people are always treated as people.
Supposing it were in fact,
A centre of Christian life and witness.

You could well call this short extract, ‘The Vision’.
