Administrative/Biographical history: The Congregational Federation in Wales is an English-language Christian denomination (the Welsh equivalent is Undeb yr Annibynwyr Cymraeg) mainly active in south and east Wales. The Congregational Federation is a member of the Free Church Council of Wales and Cytûn (Churches Together in Wales). Many of the congregational churches in England and Wales joined the Presbyterian Church of England to form the United Reformed Church in 1972; those that elected to retain their seperate identity formed the Congregational Federation, also in 1972. The Congregational Federation in Wales is an autonomous part of the Congregational Federation in the UK.
