What is the Easter Story Trail?

An Easter Story Trail is an exciting, awe-inspiring, unforgettable experience for children. It allows Churches to share the Easter Story with local primary schools. From the moment they enter the Trail the children are fully immersed in the setting and events of the first Easter.  As the Trail ends the children feel that they have been eye witnesses.
The story unfolds in a wholly engaging way as the children move in and through successive scenes of the Easter events.

It’s interactive, educational and by its very nature evangelistic. Working together, Christians can build bridges with local schools, serve the local community and make Jesus known.

As the title suggests it is a telling of the Easter Story with the addition of a fairly elaborate backdrop or set which the children move round during the telling of the story and gives them the experience of being at the events of the first Easter.

The four scenes comprise the Upper room, The Garden of Gethsemane, the Cross and the Empty Tomb.  Each scene is linked to the previous by a passage or walkway.  The backdrops and walkways are made from cloth supported by a wooden framework.
