Administrative history

Cymanfa Bedyddwyr Caerfyrddin a Cheredigion (Carmarthenshire and Cardiganshire Baptist Association) was a grouping of the Baptist Churches within those two counties with the purpose of encouraging and facilitating cooperation between them. The Association was in existence by 1880. In the 1890s, the Association set up a Home Mission to provide additional support to areas of need. In the 1950s, it also created a Young People's Association.
