in 1867 the church felt the need to establish a work in Pontllanfraith as the rise of the local population due to the advent of coal mining had transformed the area.
The original site of Elim was at the bottom of Llanarth Road and work was completed in 1869.
As membership increased it was necessary to build a new church and after much discussion Elim's present location was decided upon.
The work was completed in 1912.
