Zion Chapel, Crynant, was a Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, located on Neath Road, the main road through the town, situated on the left-hand side as you head towards Aberdulais, between Saron Chapel and Saint Margaret's Church.
Zion Chapel was built in 1821, and modified in 1868. Still shown on maps in the 1950s, it had since been sold and is now used as a private workshop.

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.
