This Church in Wales church is one of three in the parish of Cwmtawe Uchaf. LinkExternal link to a front view.

There has been a church here for many centuries, possibly dating back to the 6th century. The present building, with a seating capacity of about 120, opened in 1893, replacing the previous building which had become too small for the size of the congregation. The growth in the numbers of parishioners to more than 200 followed the opening of a quarry and brickworks at nearby Penwyllt.
The population in 2011 is about 75.
