Modern church flyer designs
Church service flyer designs don’t have to come off as old-fashioned or overly formal. Vibrant and friendly colors paired with modern fonts make for flyers that feel more contemporary. This church event flyer template uses warm and inviting colors to draw in the reader:
You can easily customize this template to swap in background colors and icons of your choice on the Venngage platform. Venngage also has 2k+ diverse icons with editable skin tones to help you represent your diverse audience.
Want to use a different background color? How about… red? Within the Venngage editor, click on “Background,” and select a new background color for your design:

The next template offers a flyer for a specific kind of service, Holy Communion, but you can modify it to suit your needs:
This template uses a close-up image to draw the reader in while showing exactly what the service is about. The blue color overlay takes the focus away from the stock image while still allowing it to contribute to the flyer content. It’s easy to change the background too — you can choose from the millions of flyer background images on the Venngage platform or import your own.
This flyer also uses shapes to call attention to the date and time. Adding background shapes with a different color than your font ensures your text is visible.
Remember the blue overlay that helps tie the photo into the color palette? You can add color filters by selecting “Edit Image” and using the right-side toolbar:
Church Bible study flyers
Bible studies are all about bringing people together in fellowship, and flyers can help you expand your group. You can use an inspiring message to connect with your audience. In this template, a simple background image puts all the focus on the text:

This Sunday School open house template also uses an image as its focal point:
Notice how the template takes prominent colors from the photo and uses them as background colors, giving the flyer a sense of unity.

Then you can easily apply your swatch colors when customizing your background, shape, and font colors.
