Study the history of religion in Wales with students and especially the history of the Rhondda and the history of non-conformism and Welsh chapels. Why did the chapel become a centre for such social activities? What were the alternatives available at the time and how does that differ to today? Get students to design social activities they would like to see in their local churches in order to attract more members.
