A Children's Trail is a questionnaire designed by members of The Arts Society for children aged 8 -12 but is really for people of all ages! The trail guides the participant round a church looking at the architecture, history and furnishings. A corresponding answer sheet is provided for accompanying adults. The aim is to encourage children to explore the building, to learn about it and enjoy the experience so that they are inspired to visit other churches.

The trail may be used with schools, It may also be used by clergy and staff, with children's groups and by families visiting the church. One incumbent, using half the trail with a class and then inviting the parents to finish the trail with their children, announced that he had learned “so much about his church from the The Arts Society Trail!” When a trail has been designed and tested, a CD and hard copy of the questions and answers will be presented to the church to use as it wants.

The local The Arts Society bears the small cost of making the trail and setting it up in the church. The church would then fund the maintenance of supplies of the trail.

The question and answer sheets may be found in the Documents section but may be accessed by following the links below. The churches are in alphabetical order with the question sheet first.
