Administrative / Biographical History
The cause began as a branch of the church at Tirdwncyn. This later became Mynydd-bach, holding meetings in a farmhouse in the Upper Town area of Loughor. In the beginning of the eighteenth century, the congregation moved to new premises at Rhydymaerdy. In 1815, the old chapel at Brynteg was built and a new building was erected in 1897 to the north of the existing chapel.
Arranged into the following: chapel history, adroddiadau blynyddol [Annual reports], records of chapel trustees, volumes relating to finance, files of correspondence and other papers regarding church property and procedures, programmes and service leaflets for special events and services, information booklets, other documents relating to church property, and artefact.
