Purchased by the Catholic Archdiocese of Cardiff in May 2012, the chapel was awarded with a heritage Lottery Fund of £1.2million for the refurbishment. The historic Ebenezer Chapel has now been transformed into an exciting venue for all occasions including business, community, arts and weddings, as well as a café to the side.

As neighbours to the Cornerstone redevelopment project, Momentum is proud to have furnished the beautifully restored chapel. Momentum worked closely with the project manager and appointed architects Petersen Williams to specify the furniture and to advise on interior design & space planning. The architects were sympathetic to the original design of the chapel and ensured original features were preserved and highlighted in the refurbishment.
