The church was founded in Cardigan in 1880 as a daughter church of Bethania Welsh Baptist Church whose land we share. In 2005, the church celebrated its 125th anniversary. The building itself is a listed building, and in some respects is a typical example of the architecture used in Baptist non-conformity.
