Founded in 1902, as the result of the missionary activities, in 1895, of Dr William Griffiths of Pontypridd and the Rev George St Clair of Aberdare. The congregation, as it gradually increased, moved to the New Market Hall. In 1904 the congregation decided to move to its final home, in New Street, a building which had been used for an estate office, a book-shop and a Quaker Meeting House. This building, known as Y Capel Bach, was formally dedicated to be used as a Unitarian church in 1906. It was purchased by the Unitarians in 1957 and sold in 2006. (Unitarian Historical Society)

People


David Ivon Jones 1883-1924
Address/Location:





In his teens he converted from Methodism to Unitarianism, and worshipped at the Unitarian Chapel (Little Chapel) in New St. Searching for a warmer drier climate to cure his TB he left for New Zealand, eventually settling in the Orange Free State, South Africa, in 1910. Here he joined the South African Labour Party, and was one of the first whites to champion equal right for black workers. He was honoured by the African National Congress and the South African Communist Party, and was elected general secretary of the Labour Party in 1914.

His TB worsening, he left for Moscow in 1920, where he met Lenin, and translated some of his works into English. He died in Yalta in 1924 and was buried in Moscow.
