The Childrens Trail

A NADFASChurch Trail is available in the church. A Church Trail is a question sheet that guides children and their accompanying adults around the 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, writen and designed in a child friendly format.

Memories which can now be passed from generation to generation, recreating the past and keeping future generations in touch with their heritage. There will be a display of photographs to enhance the tales told. So please come along and vist
