Ebeneser Chapel was built in 1975 to replace the original Ebeneser Chapel on Queen Street (NPRN 7910 and demolished in 1979). The chapel was designed by G Raymond Jones & Associates of Wrexham, and built at a cost of £182,000 it was consecrated on 14th January 1976.

The building complex consists of a number of wedge shaped, interlinked, buildings providing chapel, school room, and meeting rooms amoung others. Construction is of brown brick, with a copper clad roof, and small flat-headed windows to the sides and rear - there are no windows located in the street elevation. The chapel room has no windows, focusing attention on an 'apse' area furnished with a pulpit and simple alter and lit from above by a wedge-shaped rooflight. in recent years this rooflight has had panels of coloured glass inserted, patterned with triangles of varying hues, which throw a pattern onto the wall immediatly behind the pulpit when sunny.
