Church Signs & Notice Boards

Whether you are looking for lockable notice boards, traditional entrance signs or a more modern approach to your signage, Shelley Signs are sensitive to the particular requirements of places of worship. Robert Shelley, as Treasurer of a small rural church in Shropshire understands the financial pressure associated with these decisions.

Most Church Signage projects start with us providing a quote. You can contact us via email, the enquiry form or give us a call – we are always happy to chat through your requirements.

Some clients know exactly what they want and provide a detailed brief. Others are looking for guidance and to explore options – we are happy to work with you to define your project.

Artwork for Church Signs

When commissioning church signs and notice boards, few churches and other places of worship are able to supply their own artwork. Shelley offer an in-house design team and can undertake graphics and design from your outline sketches. We would provide an initial concept and then amend it as many times as necessary until you are happy. In addition to signs, we can help design leaflets and other publicity material.

Entrance Signs for Churches

Church Welcome sign on posts

The design for church signs & notice boards will commonly include a welcome message, contact details and perhaps times of services. The contact details section is often produced as a changeable slide to allow for staff changes.

As you can see from the church sign gallery below, these can range from traditional style designs to a very modern, contemporary feel.

Church Notice Boards

Ideal for displaying your temporary notices, upcoming events, service times, opening hours, and publicity material. Notice boards for churches and normally hinged and lockable – they can be produced in a range of materials such as oak, treated softwood or aluminium. Sometimes church noticeboards are incorporated as part of the main entrance sign.

Wood Noticeboards

Our wood notice boards are produced in Oak & Accoya and are glazed with shatterproof polycarbonate. They’re a popular choice for church signs where additional parish and community information can be displayed, in a traditional format.

Aluminium Noticeboards

Our notice boards are used by a wide variety of clients who appreciate their attractive appearance and general robustness. Noticeboards can be supplied with steel or aluminium posts for ground fixing, for wall mounting or for fitting to railings.

Church Sign/Notice Board Combinations

We often supply integral units with both a notice board and a permanent printed church sign. This is a popular solution addressing the needs of long-term graphics with short-term displays.

Directional & Safety Signs

All signs in churches should be as discreet and unobtrusive – and only installed if absolutely necessary. Sometimes directional and safety signs are required – a warning about dangerous steps being a typical example. Shelley can produce low-key signs in either printed or timber. 

Interpretation Panels

Many churches are involved in fundraising and consider the Heritage Lottery Fund for help. HLF assistance often comes with a demand for interpretation – with our expertise in this field Shelley can help design and produce subtle and cost-effective interpretation and provide advice about website design.

Places of worship need long-term signs to promote their presence in the community and their day-to-day activities. They frequently have a need to display changeable graphics which can be achieved through lockable notice boards or pavement signs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a church notice board the best way of displaying temporary notices?

Yes, if you need to display a quick message such as an event cancellation or other last-minute update. Church signs or notice boards are more permanent fixtures and can be difficult to remove once they’re installed on the building. Many church notice boards are mounted so that they can be removed when necessary.

Is it important that the church notice board is lockable?

Some churches choose to display their notices temporarily such as for upcoming events. In these cases, locking the noticeboard may not be necessary since people will only need access during certain times and can remove items from the bottom or top when finished. However, if you’re looking for a more permanent solution or want to keep people from tampering with your notices, a lockable board would be ideal.

What church signs are good for displaying upcoming events?

If you’re promoting upcoming activities such as performances, church services, or other gatherings, church signs can be great for getting the word out. Posters and flyers are commonplace forms of advertisement, but they can often be overlooked or forgotten when placed in busy areas. Church notice boards provide a more permanent solution to advertising your events, and will likely catch people’s attention as they walk or drive by.

What type of information should be displayed on church signs?

The content of your church sign will vary depending on the purpose of the sign. If it’s used as an entrance sign, you’ll likely want to include the church’s name and logo. If it’s a directional sign, you’ll need to include information about the location of the church. And if it’s a noticeboard, you can display any type of information that you like.
