A NADFAS Church Trail is a question sheet that guides children and accompanying adults round a church and encourages them to engage with the architecture, history and furrnishings.  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.

The questionnaire is an A4, two sided sheet in a child friendly design.  The simplicity of the format keeps the cost of printing to an absolute minimum.  The Answers, also on two sides of an A4 sheet, are knowledgeable and well researched.

St Peter's, Lutton Place, Edinburgh approached EDFAS and asked them to compile a Church trail which was completed and presented to the church in January this year.  There are a wealth of churches in Edinburgh where wonderful church trails could be created and EDFAS woudl be delighted to welcome any members who wish to be on the Church Trails team.
