History and Heritage

Saron Apostolic Church, Ystradgynlais

Saron Apostolic Church, Ystradgynlais, was constructed on Ynyscedwyn Road in 1927 and rebuilt in 1990, and it is now known as Church in the Community (CITC).



From the Llais

The Llais newspaper had always included a round-up of happenings at local churches and chapels, even when these were not part of any particular story. Sometimes they advertised forthcoming events, and at other times who was preaching, or had preached there recently.

In addition, Saron took out little advertising boxes for events held at their chapel. We present a mixture of both below:-
