If you clicked on this article, we probably don’t need to convince you of the importance of church bulletins. You wouldn’t be signing up for free church bulletin templates if you didn’t believe that the bulletin has an important place in your church’s outreach.

Some have argued that the printed church bulletin is on its death bed and that churches ought to embrace a new way of making announcements.

But as church marketing expert Steve Fogg has pointed out, a printed bulletin is a great tool to communicate to first-time visitors and is helpful for people still finding their way into your church.

Many visitors and even regular attenders expect to receive a printed bulletin when they are greeted at your church. And you want to make sure that your church bulletins make the best impression possible. Which is why we’ve created the 8 free church bulletin templates below: to help you get started creating your own attention-grabbing bulletins that will effectively communicate with your congregation.

Ready to Breathe Some Life Into Your Church Bulletins?

It goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: your church is unique. Which means that your bulletins should be customized to fit your church’s needs and audience.

This is the value of having bulletin templates that you can easily customize: they give you a helpful starting point but allow you to make needed changes until you have the bulletin that’s perfect for your church.

Each of our bulletin templates is 4-sided, consisting of a cover that was designed by a professional graphic designer, two interior pages with a variety of information, and a back with additional information.

The templates feature many content options to choose from, including a sermon notes section, a weekly schedule, information about your church, an events sections, and an area for visitors to share information.

Two Unique Bulletin Interior Options

Each bulletin template includes interior pages with a background to match the front and back. We think this brings the design of the templates to life.

But to provide you with more flexibility when designing your bulletins, we decided to include two versions of each template in your download: one with a white interior and one with a background to match the front and back:
