General-purpose church service planning template

This is a template or worksheet for the form-of-service for a general purpose non-denominational or multi-denominational church service.

Form-of-service template, MS Word version

Form-of-service template, PDF version

It has sections for each of the typical elements in a form-of-service

Using a planning form like this helps to understand and communicate:
  • What exactly is happening in the service
  • In what order
  • Who is doing what, and
  • (for music) What key it is to be played in. 

The form is one page long - so you can see all the elements in the service at a glance, but has enough space to list every individual element in most cases.

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