The Reverend Grenville Fisher is leading a team of dedicated trustees putting their faith into reviving the fortunes of a Swansea chapel which helped to shape the world.
The overgrown graveyard of Mynyddbach Independent Chapel is the final resting place of the great and the good of Swansea, including Daniel James who penned the lyrics of Calon Lan and John Humphries, God's architect. When it was founded in 1762 its members were treated as outcasts.
Grenville explained that it's in this position because of the persecution of the non-conformists in the past. These buildings could only be built five miles outside the town boundaries. The non-conformists were to change the world. There are chapels called Mynyddbach all over the world because of this place.
The members of the church used to be 1,200 and more. On one particular Sunday they brought 650 people into membership in one service, which they had to hold in the graveyard because the church was too small.
We want people to be interested in what we are trying to do and to give what they can especially in time, ideas and talent. The money will automatically follow.
