13 Compelling Church Welcome Videos

New! An Inspiring Collection of 50 Church Welcome Videos.

Either on your church website, or played at the start of the service, welcome videos can be a useful and powerful method of communicating with newcomers. Here's thirteen compelling videos in a range of styles, each standing out for a different reason.

Welcome to Cornerstone Community Church

This video is compelling because of Francis Chan's genuine passion for Jesus name to be honoured, and he clearly articulates why the church was started, and what he desires for the church.

Welcome to Our Church

This video by Floodgate Productions has been used by many different churches. It spells out what the church believes, and challenges the newcomer in a full-on, yet friendly way.

Welcome to Liquid, New Brunswick

Set in the community, this video is well produced, well scripted, and, after watching this video, I wanted to join!

Welcome to OUR place

This video is simple and text-based, and emphasises that all people are welcome at the church.

Welcome to Denver Church

Short, sweet and to the point. A good idea for helping newcomers put faces to names.

Welcome to Bay Community Church

Very short, but conveys some key messages about the purpose of the church.

Need to Know

Not strictly a ‘welcome' video, this video aims to provide newcomers to church with the information they need to know.

Trinity Fellowship

An inspirational, and very well-produced welcome video.

Oak Leaf

This video is played at the start of the service. I felt a bit dizzy watching it, but it's not bad otherwise!


This isn't a video for a particular church, but seeks to rebut some of the reasons people give for not going to church.

Mitchelton Presbyterian Church

MPC takes a different approach – using images with a voiceover from the minister, introducing the staff team.

Imperfect People Welcome

Helpful reassurance that it's not just perfect people who are welcome at church.

Welcome to Dayspring

This video outlines the three values of the church, and why they are important.

    I’m not really impressed by this videos. They are ok, but not more than that. The fx are old skool and most of the audio is pretty bad. I think we should strive for better videos than this. Check this pre-service video of Hillsong: I think thats a really good, professional video and should be something we want to make.

    I agree. A lot of video’s use premade effects wich is totally unoriginal. Lame!

    Sorry about that! That’s often the way on YouTube and Vimeo, not much I can do unfortunately.
