Multi-denominational church service planning template - extended version

This worksheet is for organising a larger church service, which requires a number of supporting functions as well as the service itself.

Extended template, MS Word version

Extended template, PDF version

The template does not include any specific elements (readings, hymns, prayers, communion, call-to-worship, etc), so can be used in any denomination or type of service.

The first page has sections for roles and event management functions that are often needed for church-services, including:
  • Co-ordinator / organiser
  • Building access
  • Setting up
  • Technical (Leaflets, Sound, Visuals, Lighting)
  • Greeters / Ushering
  • Fire / Health & Safety Warden
  • Car-parking
  • Childcare
  • Readers
  • Music (Director, musicians, singers)
  • Hospitality / Refreshments
  • Clean-up

And there is space to add other roles that you need. 

The form is two pages long - one page for the supporting items, one for the service - so you can see everything at a glance.  For larger services, you may need to extend this, or even make multi-page plans for specific elements.

The Church Service Planning Template - simple version only has the second page, and is more suitable when there are no extra features needed..

Download the form by clicking on the format you prefer (MS Word or PDF), and saving the file that opens onto your computer.

The form is covered by a Creative Commons licence that lets you change it and make as many copies as you want for non-commercial purposes.  The only restriction is that you must not remove the copyright notice.
