Accessibility:

The church does not have its own car park; however, on-street parking may be available on Sundays, including separate disability spaces. The nearest public car parks are Friars Park (SA31 3BN) or John Street (SA31 1QT), both of which are pay and display, even on Sundays. Alternatively, there is a multi-storey car park (St Catherine's Walk) near Debenhams. All of these car parks have specified disability spaces.

There is a dropped-kerb from the road and a small step through the gates. The entrance to the church itself has eight steps up to the doorway, however, there is another entrance to the lower undercroft of the church which avoids the steps and leads to a lift to allow access to the church. Inside the church is level with wide aisles. There are toilet facilities located on the lower level at the café.

Brief Description:

The English Baptist Church in Carmarthen is a grade II* listed building. It was listed in May 1981 because it is seen as one of the most architecturally-ambitious classical chapels in Wales. The church was built in 1869-70 on the site of the Black Horse inn and was the first major work of George Morgan, a leading 19th century architect from Carmarthen, who was also a deacon of the chapel.
