About us

Community Wise, a community centre, is a focal point for the local community and a provider of community services.

Our aims are to

  • Serve the community
  • Encourage the family
  • Value individuals, identifying and responding to their needs
  • Promote community spirit

We do this by

  • Providing community facilities at low cost
  • actively encouraging the development of community groups
  • enabling the formation of new groups as and when needs have been identified and opportunities arise
  • envisioning and supporting staff and volunteers
  • working in partnership with other agencies

A partnership with Living Stones Community Church supports Community Wise.  The Church is a separate charitable trust with very similar aims.  The Church uses the building for its Sunday morning and afternoon meetings and for other meetings and events from time to time.  The Church office is based at Community Wise (tel: 01323 724836).  The Church takes responsibility for a ten week 'Alpha Course' which takes participants through the elementals of the Christian faith and gives opportunity for thought and discussion.  Sunday morning meetings are held at 10.30 am and 4.00 pm and visitors, including children and young people of all ages, are very welcome.  The Trustees of Community Wise are appointed by Living Stones Church and many volunteers contribute to the management, maintenance and programmes of the Centre.

Our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint has lead to us installing 42 solar panels on the roof, meaning that we not only generate electricity to run the building but that we are selling clean energy back to the National Grid.

As our building is sited on the edge of the conservation area of Old Town we play an important role in the life of our local community; maintaining and improving the economic viability and sense of the community in the Motcombe district.
