Administrative / Biographical History

Eglwys Moriah was a Welsh Baptist Chapel in Ynystawe, Glamorgan, now in Swansea. The cause began with a Sunday School meeting in Ivy Cottage, Ynystawe, the house of William Lewis, as an off-shoot of Calfaria, Clydach, in 1877. This was successful, to the extent that a separate building (later the chapel vestry) was built in 1882 and a congregation was formed in 1888. A new chapel was built next to the old in 1928. The chapel closed in 2014.
