TitleBridgend Wesleyan Methodist Circuit Records
BackgroundWesleyan Methodists began making in-roads in south Wales during the mid-eighteenth century, and a Glamorganshire Circuit was established in 1765. In 1796 the circuit was divided into two smaller units, Swansea serving the west, and Cardiff the east. In 1817 Cardiff was divided into English and Welsh circuits, and in 1848 Bridgend split from Cardiff, forming its own circuit. Kenfig Hill Wesley Hall was first used as a Methodist church in 1921. The present Brynna Methodist Church was built in 1908. The Pontyclun United Methodist Church was built in 1899.
