Newsletters are a great tool for churches to use. Whether you use a digital newsletter or a paper one, newsletters allow members to stay informed, be encouraged, and become more involved in the life of the local church. We’ve rounded up some of the best newsletter designs to feature, so you can get some ideas as to how your next newsletter can look.
This newsletter uses a large header image to grab attention and announce the newsletter’s theme. A defined color band crosses the middle of the page, providing a helpful visual anchor for the title and beginning of the copy.
Newsletters that are more than just a few pages in length should have a table of contents. This newsletter uses the dark-colored image to the right to add this handy guide for finding articles of interest, and to get a preview of what’s in the newsletter.
The most outstanding feature of this newsletter is its color and visual impact. At the same time, it has a clean, readable format.
The map of the world picture covers more than one half of the first page, giving this newsletter instant visual power. At the same time, there is plenty of text on the first page, as well as a table of contents.
This newsletter uses fresh colors and the familiar design of the cross to draw in readers.
Most newsletter designs and templates provide a feature image at the top. This newsletter uses both the top and the bottom to provide color and interest.

The most important aspect of a newsletter is its content, not its design. But without a good design, people are less likely to read the content or to have a good impression if they do read it.
