CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The English Congregational cause in Barry, Glamorgan, dates from 1889 when a meeting, convened by the Rev. John Williamson, of Cardiff, was held to consider establishing a church. Shortly afterwards, on 3 January 1890, the decision was taken to lease land on the corner of Windsor Road and Porthkerry Road and to establish a church-cum-school, which opened on 27 May 1890. The Sunday School was completely re-built in 1899-1900, and a church was erected in 1903-1904.
