Church Trails are a recent addition to the range of activities undertaked by member societies of The Arts Society. They are intended to encourage young people and families to engage with a Church's or other similar location's history, architecture and furnishings by researching and designing a Church Trail for Children. This, through pictures, questions and quizzes encourages them to make a more detailed examination of the location.
The Arts Society Gainsborough & District committee have put together a House Trail for the Old Rectory at Epworth along the same lines as a Church Trail. This important building was the home of the Wesley family and is of huge international significance.
