Designing an Effective Church Flyer


Church flyers contain important information about church events in an attractive format that is easy to distribute. They spread the word about youth group events, weekly services, visiting pastors or other speakers, bible study meetings, prayer meetings, holiday services, and more. In this article, we’ll discuss the elements of a great church flyer!

What to Include in a Church Flyer

Let’s cover the most important information first: what to include in a church flyer. Here’s what you can’t forget.

The Name, Date, Time, and Location of the Event

To put it simply, congregants can’t attend your event if they don’t know what, when, and where it is! GIve your event a descriptive and exciting name, and state the date and time clearly. To provide as much detailed information as possible, include both the name and street address of the venue. 

If you’re planning to live-stream your event, list the URL that viewers should use to tune in. The same is true if you’re planning to post a link to a video of the event after the fact. 

High-Quality Photos

Include a photo of the event leader, which will help participants feel an emotional connection to the event. All the better if you’re inviting a special speaker or religious leader; including a high-quality photo of your guest in your church flyer will drive up the excitement! 

Where to Get More Information

Your church flyer will increase anticipation about your event and give attendees the basic event information. But where should they look for more details? Your church’s website or Facebook page, of course! Provide a link to your church’s website on your flyer so that attendees can learn more about the speaker, the topic, and your church. 

Consider using a URL shortener such as Bitly so that your church URL doesn’t take up too much space. If you’re distributing your flyer virtually, remember to make the link on your flyer live, so that participants can simply click on it to learn more. 

Church Flyer Design Ideas

There are many examples online to help you design a church flyer. As you’re creating a design, here are the top three goals to keep in mind. 

Make It Clear

As we discussed above, if people don’t know the details about your event, they can’t come. This means that it’s your job to make your church flyer easy to read and easy to understand. 

Make the name of the event the largest item on the page, followed by the date. Use fonts that are easy to read and a different color from the background. 

Make It Memorable

Your flyer is an advertising tool, so include bold design items that people can’t stop thinking about. Many church flyers use bright colors like purple, gold, and white, which are exciting and invigorating. 

If you’re looking for the perfect font, consider a bold one such as Brittanic or Phosphate. For your church flyer background, pick either a solid color that matches your text color or a subtle pattern.

Make It Shiny

Church flyers are all about building excitement about an event. It may sound subtle, but one effective way to increase excitement is by printing your flyer on a gloss paper. Gloss text and cover paper give your flyer that extra sparkle that elevates your event above the rest.
