Administrative/Biographical history: In 1856, three members of Ebenezer Welsh Congregational Chapel, Cardiff, Glamorgan, recognised the growing need for religious provision in the town's thriving docks area. A site was secured for the purpose on Mount Stuart Square, and opened as a Welsh Congregational Chapel in May 1858. By 1912, Mount Stuart Square had become a busy commercial centre, leading the chapel to move to a new site on nearby Pomeroy Street. The Rev. John Davies, the first minister at Mount Stuart Square, recognised that there was also a demand for English language services in the Docks. These began in 1866, and Hannah Street English Congregational Chapel was built and opened in 1868. The original building was sold in 1917, and during this period the congregation met at Patrick Street. In 1928, the new building, also on Hannah Street, was opened. Although damaged in an air raid during 1943, it was rebuilt, with greater seating capacity. The chapel later affiliated with the United Reformed Church. It held its final service in 2002.
