Ynysgau Chapel was one of the earliest chapels in Merthyr Tydfil. The cause dated back to 1749 and services were held in the Welsh language. The chapel was demolished in 1967 as part of the Merthyr Town Improvement Scheme.
A new chapel was built in the 1850s and opened on Easter Sunday, 1854. A contemporary account described the new building as a "new structure of much architectural beauty, decorated with coloured glass windows." This was the final building to house the chapel.
