People often have the wrong impression when they think of the church. To them, going to church actually makes you a perfect person, as someone who will never commit any mistake or is free from any sin. People should learn to see the church as a path, as something that motivates people to do good.
The church isn’t just a structure, it is an entity that actually teaches people the difference between right and wrong, and it is up to the person to decide on what to follow. In this article, we have a collection of flyer templates that can be used to invite people into attending masses and other church activities.
In order for flyers to be considered effective, it will need to be informative as well as appealing. A quality church flyer needs to attract the attention of people even at a distance, and its content should really entice people into attending church affairs. The list below enumerates the elements that a quality church flyer should have.
1. Church name: Your church flyer should start by introducing to the reader the name of your church. Other flyers would utilize this section for the name and the logo of the business, but since this is meant to be used by a church, you will need to indicate their name instead. In addition, churches usually have their own insignia, and you may be allowed to include it along with their name.
2. Flyer heading: Otherwise known as the flyer title, this is usually to give the reader an idea or to set their expectations regarding the advertised event. The heading or title is also responsible for drawing people’s attention towards the flyer, which is why as much as you want them to sound creative, they should also be relevant to the event.
3. Subheading or tagline: Since the title serves as the most prominent element on the flyer and is responsible for giving initial information to readers, the subheading serves to complement that information by providing further information. This element is usually longer and smaller than the heading and is placed right below it.
4. List of key persons: Church affairs usually involve key people who will lead the attendees in the discussion or worship session. Just like seminars wherein the speaker is recognized on the invitation or announcement material, the same thing should be done for church events—the key person/s should be mentioned on the flyer.
5. Date, time, and venue: These three elements are very common in invitations, but they can also be found on event invitations. Basically, these elements are mainly to inform the reader when and where the event is going to be held, and you will need to be precise with this so as not to mislead the reader.
6. Graphical enhancements: Drawing attention from audiences is a big part of using flyers because, by it, you will be able to stimulate their curiosity and make them want to learn more. A good way to catch people’s attention is by enhancing the flyer design through the use of graphical elements such as photos or illustrations.
7. Contact person and number: When an event is being planned, there will always be a person responsible for putting it together. In addition to that, this person is also responsible for answering inquiries related to the event. When indicating the contact number, you should also include the name of the contact person to inform readers who to look for.

If you’re unsure with your own evaluation, you can always ask another person to do it with you.
5. Print your flyers: The final step in the process of creating flyers is printing them. For this step, you should decide whether to have it printed yourself or by a printing business. If you’re choosing the former, just make sure to use high quality materials.

Before you even start creating your own church flyer, it is important for you to know the different types of flyers. You don’t necessarily have to memorize each and every flyer type, you just need to be familiar with them. In other words, you simply need to keep in mind what or where each flyer type is being used for.
1. Event flyer: Flyers can also be used to advertise an event and to gather audiences to that event. This type of flyer is known as an event flyer, which works more or less the same way as an invitation, with the exception that this one doesn’t require an envelope and can be distributed by hand.
2. Product flyer: When businesses try to advertise their products and services, they usually use product brochures which are very thorough. However, if they want to use something that’s more simplified, they can always use a product flyer. Between the two, product flyers are actually easier to read but are less informative.
3. Sports flyer: Unlike the usual event flyers, this type mentions the people or the teams that will be competing. Sports events may involve just two persons or teams, or it may also involve more. Nevertheless, they should be mentioned on the flyer to inform readers about the people or teams that are playing.
4. Recruitment flyer: This type of flyer is focused more on advertising the business or organization as opposed to the product flyers which are meant to advertise products or services. The reason for advertising the business is to gain new recruits, and this may be in the form of employees or volunteers.
5. Door handle flyer: Any other type of flyer can become a door flyer, you simply need to place at least a three-inch diameter hole at the upper part of the paper material. Instead of having to distribute or post these just like any other flyer, these are simply hung on the door handles of the target audiences.
6. Folded flyer: This type of flyer is almost as similar as brochures because of its folded appearance, but as mentioned earlier, flyers are actually a simplified version of brochures. The advantage of using folded flyers is that they are actually more compact and are easier to store and distribute, just like the next one on this list.
7. Leaflet: A leaflet is basically a regular flyer that is smaller in size—99 mm x 210 mm. But other than its size, the content written on a leaflet is just like the ones from any other type of flyer.
Also, flyers come in various sizes and we have a list of the different flyer sizes below as your reference. A flyer can be as small as 2.5 by 4 inches or as big as 11 by 17 inches, just make sure to choose a flyer size that works well with the type. And you should also consider the extent of your content when choosing a flyer size.
