History
For some reason I can't seem to find a lot of history on this building and as far as I'm aware it's not listed. The church was built in 1907 to designs of architects Evans, Williams & Evans of Pontypridd in the lancet style and incorporating many red terracotta features, including the arcades and window tracery. The exterior stonework on the northern end and blocked arches internally suggest a chancel was planned but never built. The church closed sometime around 2005 from what I can find. The building looks to be in good structural condition, although many of the coloured glass windows have been smashed and interior fittings stripped.

The explore
Visited on a wet morning in early March. Had a quick look inside while @jsp77 and prettyvacant71 waited in the car. Not a whole lot to see but it's a nice building with an contrast between the smooth, red terracotta and the rough, grey local stone along with a good roof.

Surprised you didn't run into a few Doctor Who / Torchwood aficionados there as it is quite a popular location on their South Wales wanderings !
