'For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to search of their fathers.' Job 8:8
Mount Carmel English Baptist Church was founded in 1874 when certain members of the sister Welsh Baptist Church at Tonyfelin, Caerphilly (established in 1784) had felt the need of an English Baptist cause in Caerphilly. They were supported by Dr Davies, the famous blind preacher from Swansea and the project was placed in the hands of Rev Alfred Tilley of Tredegarville, Cardiff and the Rev W Morgan of Maesycwmmer. Mount Carmel English Baptist Church was eventually formed in 1874, the word “Engish” being removed from the church title some twenty years ago.
