Ruhamah, Bridgend

This is Ruhamah Welsh Baptist Church, Bridgend. The name of the chapel is unusual, being derived from the book of Hosea, Chapter 2, verse 1:
"Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi; and to your sisters, Ruhamah." The name means 'Having Obtained Mercy'. I have never come across another church with this name in the UK before, although I am sure there are some. This is the original Baptist Church in Bridgend, and was the mother-church of a number of Baptist causes in the area.
The language used in this church is Welsh. For this reason, I have no idea where it is doctrinally.
