Preston’s St George’s Church will host a weekly ‘Creation Crawl’ treasure hunt this summer for local young people across the city.


During the treasure hunt, participants and their families will search for letters in the windows of businesses around the city centre, leading them back to St George’s, where they can collect arts and crafts packs.

All are welcome to take part, and each week, the trail will change. Throughout the summer, the church will display arts and crafts and award prizes while participants journey through the story of creation.

Participants should arrive at St George’s between 10.00am and 3.00pm on Saturdays during the school holidays to collect clues and a trail map.

Over six weeks, the arts and crafts packs will explore the story of creation, and the letters will outline the weekly theme. Weekly prizes are available, and the arts and crafts will be displayed in the church for visitors.  

A representative said as the Creation Crawl is free, the church hopes it will be a fun activity for young people and something to engage with during the summer break.

St George’s is keen to attract families to Preston City Centre and offer an activity for young people to interact with as they travel around town.

Through the arts and crafts, the church hopes that the Creation Crawl will also allow the participants to learn whilst having fun.
