Hafodyrynys Congregational Chapel (1905)

Although no revivalist has visited the isolated village of …between the eastern and western valleys of Monmouthshire, some memorable meetings have been held, not the least striking being that on Sunday night. Seven persons were given the right hand of fellowship at the Congregational church, when two men entered the chapel, one saying with trembling voice that he was a ‘backslider’ and that both had decided for Christ. Praise rang through the chapel and the service continued until 11.30pm.
