Church video announcements are a great way to get your congregation excited about what's going on. They're short, sweet, and to the point- perfect for getting your message across without taking up too much time. Plus, they can be as creative as you want them to be! 

But, making effective church video announcements can be tricky. If you're not careful, you might come across as boring or unprofessional. 

That said, there are some key tips that you can follow to make sure your church video announcements are effective. This blog post will outline those tips and what they can mean to your church's success.

1. Use creative visuals 

Church videos are a great way to communicate with your congregation and can be a fun way to announce upcoming events or share news. However, if you’re using the same boring clip, your videos will likely get lost in the shuffle. Instead, try using creative visuals to help your announcements stand out. It's time to bring some life to your videos again! 

There are many different ways to create engaging visuals for your church video announcements. You can use motion graphics, animation, live footage, or a combination of different elements.

Your creativity can go a long way in making your church video announcements more effective. While there are many different ways to use creative visuals in your church video announcements, here are four ideas that will help you get started.

1. Use short videos instead of slideshows

Slideshows are so 2000. In this day and age, most people would rather watch a short video than look at a slideshow. Not only are videos more engaging, but they’re also more memorable.

2. Incorporate different types of media

Videos are engaging and can help create a sense of excitement and anticipation for upcoming events. But don’t stop at just plain old video footage. Instead, incorporate different media types, such as photos, text, animations, and music, into your announcements for a truly creative and engaging look.

3. Create a theme for your announcements

Church announcements don't have to be boring. In fact, they can be downright entertaining - and even a little bit creative - while still delivering the necessary information. Creating a theme for your announcements can help keep your congregation engaged and interested.

This can be as simple as declaring the month "Mission Month" and having all the announcements revolve around different missionary stories. Or, if your church is hosting a special guest speaker or series, you might want to center your announcements around that. 

The key is to be original and consistent so that people know what to expect from your video announcements each week.

2. Tell a story

Church announcements are supposed to inform and entertain the congregation. Too often, they are dry and dull. With a little effort, your church video announcements can tell a story that engages the audience and leaves them with a takeaway.

Start by thinking about the story you want to tell. What is the main point you want to get across?

Once you have that nailed down, start designing your video around it. Make sure the visuals and audio support the story and keep it concise. You don't want to overwhelm the audience, so don't over-animate. Stay true to your story, but make sure it is catchy and relevant to the subject.

A compelling story may help you connect with your congregation on an emotional level, hammering home your church's message in a manner that words alone could never accomplish.

3. Keep it short and sweet

Church video announcements don't have to be lengthy and drawn out. Just make sure that you cover the important information. There is no need to beat around the bush; get to the point and let people know what they need to do or what they need to know. This will help keep people's attention focused and minimize confusion. 

Also, do not forget to include a call to action step at the bottom of the video to ensure people understand what you are trying to accomplish.

4. Pick a good presenter

You've put a lot of time and effort into creating a terrific church video announcement. You've selected the right song, created an eye-catching video, and recorded a great message. But all of that hard work will be for naught if you don't have a good presenter. 

You need someone who can engage and captivate the congregation and make sure everything is on point. This could be an experienced church member, a seasoned church leader, or even someone from the youth ministry.

People love to see personality and motivation in a video announcement. Find someone who can capture the audience’s attention and keep them interested throughout the announcement.

5. Get your tech ready

Churchgoing people are pretty used to announcements being read out from the pulpit, but now with the advent of technology, video announcements are becoming increasingly popular in churches. If your church is thinking of making the switch, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

First, make sure your tech is ready for the task! You’ll need a good quality camera and microphone, as well as a platform to display the videos (e.g. a projector or big screen). 

Second, make sure that you have good editing software that will let you cut and trim the videos. Some of the best ones are Adobe Premiere, Avid, and Final Cut Pro. A beginner-friendly option, that still has the capability to make great videos, is Movavi. The list goes on and on. The only thing you have to be concerned about is that your computer will have enough RAM to run the software you need. 

Finally, find good music that suits your theme and vibe. One popular option is YouTube’s free Sound Library. Having great sound will make your videos look a lot more professional. 

Over to you!


The power of video is that it can have an immediate, emotional effect on viewers. Churches can create an impact right away by using video effectively and engaging their congregation in a special way. 

There is a lot of value in using video to help churches and their members connect, especially now that technology has become so pervasive. 

So if you're not using video effectively, now is the time to get your church on board and see what a difference it can make!
