CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: New Tredegar, Saron. Baptist meetings began in 1954 at the house of William Davies (in The Ranks, Tredegar Road) who was a member of Zoar Baptist Church, Pontlottyn, and were later held at the Long Room, the Dynevor Arms Tirphil. Saron was built in 1860 on the Monmouthshire side of the River Rhymney but the meeting remained part of the Glamorgan Baptist cause. Services were generally in Welsh till 1926 although the minister was given permission in 1915 to preach for 10 minutes in English every Sunday night.
