Christ Church Cyfarthfa

In 1844 the Rector of Merthyr J C Campbell wrote a letter to the Church Commission asking for their help ‘to relieve the spiritual destitution’ of the Cyfarthfa area. In December 1845 a plan to build a new church was approved. With the aid of several donations, the church which was designed by Mr James Bennett, surveyor to the Merthyr Board of Health, was finally finished in 1857 at a cost of £2,677, and Rev John Howells was installed as the first vicar.
