In 2020 there will be a number of special centenary celebration events taking place which we will update you on soon.

Take a look at our Chapel Renovation Gallery to get an idea of just how much work was involved in getting the Calon Lan Centre renovated to to how it is today.

This work took place a few years ago bringing the Calon Lan Centre up to date and ready for use.

Regular events now take place such as concerts and Chapel events but the centre is also available for hire for a variety of functions including:

  • Weddings & Private Functions
  • Meetings / Events / Small Conferences
  • Funerals

and more…

Songs Of Praise – 4th June 2017

As part of the 375 year anniversary celebrations for Mynyddbach Chapel a Songs Of Praise is being held at the Mynyddbach Chapel on Sunday 4th June at 6.00pm.

We at Mynyddbach are very involved with trying to keep the Welsh Chapel culture alive. For this reason the hymns will all be English translations of the Welsh word to traditional Welsh hymn tunes.

Alun Tregelles Williams will be the conductor and Gareth Sims will be the Organist.

Entry is FREE but a collection will be taken.

375th Celebrations begin!

There will be a service at Mynyddbach Chapel on Thursday 14th April at 7.00pm with Reverend Derwyn Morris Jones to start our 375th anniversary celebrations.

Did you know that the non-conformist cause started at Cilfwnwr Farm in 1641 to 1745, then at Tirdwncyn Farm until 1762, then at Mynyddbach’s first chapel until 1866, when John Humphrey built the second chapel, and the present chapel.

Please come and join us!

 

Our talented painter!

Huge thank you to the talented Luke Ryan for his excellent work at Mynyddbach! He has contributed so much to the restoration project. His ‘precision painting’ and attention to detail is a work of art! Everyone who visits the chapel is more than complimentary and are singing his praises! Find out more about Luke and his business by visiting his Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/50shadespainting/

If you take a look at our Flickr page you can see how he has transformed the chapel ceiling at Mynyddbach.

Mynyddbach Chapel and the Calon Lân Centre 1640 – 2015

From September 2015 , we will be celebrating 375 years of nonconformity at Mynyddbach.  Mynyddbach is the Mother chapel to over 60 sister chapels in the Swansea and surrounding areas.  To celebrate this we have been busy renovating the chapel and grounds and on Friday 9th October at 7pm we will be holding a concert with the Pontarddulais Male Voice Choir and special guests.  Tickets are £10 on the door. The Concert on Friday will be the first time the reordered and renovated chapel will be used; the renovations have created a very versatile space for concerts, Weddings, Funerals, Baptisms and many other activities.  This concert will be held under the banner of the Calon Lân Centre which is a registered charity set up to give communities a sense of belonging and cultural identity using the history of the local area and the story of Calon Lân to bring people together.  The Trustees of the Centre have also been busy making the new section of the Cemetery available for new burials and working with CARING FOR GODS ACRE – a national charity set up to help chapels look after their grounds we have made available over 300 new burial plots in the newest section of the cemetery.

We look forward to welcoming you!
