A Thousand Voices - The History and story of Community House's picture

About

The story of the community centre known as Community House, its influence and its work in the area of Maindee, Newport the most multicultural area in Wales.

Community House is a unique place that was built in the late 1960s, replacing a Presbyterian Church on the same site. Its ethos 'building caring, resilient communities' was based
on the vision of its founder, the Rev. Cyril Summers (1920-1992) and his wife Dorothy Summers who came to Newport in the 1950s. Summers and the congregation spent many 
months discussing the role of the Church in a changing demographic and how those needs were best served. It was decided to not re-build a traditional Church,
but a community centre with a chapel at the centre, welcoming people from all faiths or none. 

A Thousand Voices is a collection of the inspirational stories of key members of Community House both past and present and in today's socio-political climate, the continuation of their work is needed now, more than ever.
