The iconic feature of Capel Ebeneser is the wedge shaped block located directly above the pulpit designed to direct sunlight onto the minister below. The stained glass panels have been introduced recently, the original 1975 design being of clear lights.
The autumn meeting of Capel took place in Wrexham on Saturday, 9th October, attended by RCAHMW staff working on the Commissions ‘Chapels Project’. The meeting started at Capel-y-Groes Welsh Calvinist Methodist Chapel (NPRN 97274) with the AGM, and moved on to an extremely informative talk about the history of Nonconformism in the Wrexham area by Dr David R Jones. This charted the social rise of the Nonconformist movement and the history of the individual chapel buildings in the town between the later 16th century and the 1970s, when many of the towns chapels were rebuilt.
