St John's church is located on the south-east side of Church Street, dating from 1858 and built at a location that was then the edge of the Penydarren settlement. The nave, of 1858, was designed by a Mr Brigden of Dowlais and is constructed of patterned stone rubble, north entrance under a stone gable. Before 1919 chancel and transepts were added, constructed of coursed, rock-faced rubble and with paired lancets enlivened with red Ruabon brick dressings.
By 2009 the church had become disused, boarded up and sold. Its current use is not recorded.
