A Children’s Trail (formerly Church Trail) is a question sheet that guides children and accompanying adults around a church and encourages them to engage with the architecture, history and furnishings. Members of The Arts Society 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 churches.

Children’s 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, The Arts Society members provide a CD and hard copy of the questions and answers to the church. The local Society bears the small cost of making the trail and setting it up in the church. The church then funds the maintenance of supplies of the trail. If you would like to help in the creation of a Children’s Trail please speak to a Committee Member or email

We currently do not have any Children's Trail projects needing the support of volunteers.
