Pennar Community Church was, until the closure of Gilgal (see below), known as Bethany Baptist Chapel. On High Street, it was built in 1818, and re-built 1877. Two interior views - 1, 2. SM 963 029. All © Mike Berrell.
Bethel Baptist Church, on Bush St. Three interior views - 1, 2, 3. SM 966 032. Mike Berrell wrote in 2009 - "Opened June 1845 but in November 1872 a terrible gale stripped a part of the roof rendering the building unsafe. The present chapel was opened in February 1875. However, massive repairs are now needed and the chapel cannot be used. The congregation meets in a room at the rear. Cadw and the local Council are insisting the lantern be preserved but it is pushing down on the roof." All © Mike Berrell.
The former Gershom Chapel on Queen Street. Calvinistic Methodist from 1838, then Primitive Methodist from 1866, it is now in commercial use. SM 967 036. © Mike Berrell (2010).

Zion Free Church (Wesleyan/Primitive Methodist, 1848) on Lower Meyrick Street. Three interior views - 1, 2, 3 - and the total immersion font. Mike advises that he was given a very warm welcome here, and that the minister and helpers are rightly proud of the work they have undertaken to repair and improve the building. SM 965 032.

A park has been made out an old cemetery on Park Street. It must have gone out of use prior to 1974. Did it have an associated chapel? SM 965 032. © Mike Berrell (2010).
