Does Your Church Have a Communication Strategy?


Managing the distribution of information is becoming an increasing challenge for all organizations, and churches are not immune.

  • What goes in the bulletin? 
  • What goes on the website?
  • What gets posted on social media?
  • Do you have an email newsletter? 
  • Where do we post the schedule of volunteers?

Our members don't want to get the same thing from four different sources but they also don't want to miss out on important information!  

Has your church developed a communication plan or strategy? If so, are you willing to share it or portions of it with churches that are looking to create such a plan?

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

Fleetwood CRC in Surrey, BC is working on one.  We have an initial draft and are fine tuning it before we present it to Council.  Church Juice was very helpful.


Bulletin: Events, calender for that week, announcements about/from church members, volunteer schedule for this and next week, general announcements.

Newsletter: Missionary updates, stories from our Bible Studies or Youth Programs, notes from organizations we support, monthly calendar, event recaps, announcements too long to fit in our bulletin.

Social Media: Reminders for events, pictures/recaps from events, sharing posts from other organizations we support. 

Website: Full calendar is available here.

We also have a bulletin board and occasionally do email blasts for special events.
