A Church Trail is a question sheet that guides children around a church and encourages them to engage with the architecture, history and furnishings. NADFAS 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 churches.
Church trails are researched, written and designed in a child friendly format. They are produced on two-sided A4, in black and white to keep the cost of reproduction to a minimum.
Once a trail has been tested, the NADFAS volunteers provide a CD and hard copy of the questions and answers to the church. The local NADFAS 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.
A NADFAS trail for your church
If you think a church trail would help visitors and congregation engage with your church, contact your local NADFAS Society and invite them to produce one
