Unitarian Chapel

Minister: Cen Llwyd

Secretary: Ms. D. Evans

Tel: 01570 424275

The original chapel dates from 1790, the present building being erected in 1851. Rhydygwin Unitarian is less than two miles to the west and Capelygoes a similar distance to the east.

The original chapel was said to be built of "mud and compost, thatched with straw" and came in for much criticism as to its state when some influential visitors called in.

The present chapel is a neat meeting house with a gallery on three sides and a beautiful wooden ceiling, the woodwork being carved by a local craftsman.

The cemetery is neatly kept. Several ministers and lay members kept a school at the chapel hall and in a nearby cottage (now demolished).

A service was held on Sunday 23rd September, 2012, at Cribyn Chapel, Ceredigion to mark 50 years of ministry of Rev. J. Eric Jones. A very large congregation from the South Wales District (Ceredigion) and the South East Wales District attended. The bilingual service was conducted by Rev. Cen Llwyd.
The service was followed by a splendid tea prepared by the ladies of Cribyn.
