Discovering a place of worship and its artworks, stained glass, artefacts and deep social history can be inspiring. Children’s Trails (formerly 'Church Trails') bring that same experience to young people aged 8-12 years. It is a joy to see their curiosity come to light. 

A Children's Trail is a question sheet that guides children and accompanying adults around a place of worship and encourages them to engage with the architecture, history and furnishings. Arts Society members voluntarily give their time to research and write the questions and corresponding answer sheets.

The aim is to encourage 8-12 year olds and their families to learn about the building and inspire them to visit and enjoy other places of worship. Trails are researched, written and designed in a child friendly format. They are produced on two-sided A4 sheets to keep the cost of reproduction to a minimum.

Once a trail has been tested, Arts Society members provide a CD and hard copy of the questions and answers to the place of worship. The local Arts Society bears the small cost of making the trail and setting it up. The place of worship then funds the maintenance of supplies of the trail.

Currently none of our members is involved in this activity.  If you are interested in creating a Children's Trail, please contact our Chairman.
