Administrative and biographical history: Upper Killay Congregational Church (also called Pines Congregational Church), Upper Killay, Glamorgan (now Swansea), grew from a prayer meeting of members of Capel-y-crwys, Three Crosses, held at The Pines Cottage in Upper Killay in 1909. A chapel was built on land leased from the Sketty Park Estate in 1911. Initially services were held in both English and Welsh; today the chapel is English speaking. Formerly affiliated to the Congregational Union, the church joined the Congregational Federation rather than the United Reformed Church in 1972.
