Top church logo designs

I think I’ve seen just about every church logo there is. Good or bad design, inspirational and creative. You name it. I’ve seen it. I think the best logos are distinctive, memorable, scalable and simple enough to use in different environments.

A logo or brand-mark though is only the tip of the branding iceberg. What wraps around the logo is just as important. 

 Here are my top ten church logos. I’d love to know yours. Drop a comment below.

1. Hillsong Church



The subtle way this logo has evolved over the years, yet maintained it’s original integrity has been fun to see. The team at Hillsong do a fantastic job of keeping the brand fresh through the years.

2. Watermark Church



I just fell in love with this logo. The way the brand is extended on the website for me takes it up a notch again.


3. Bethlehem Church



So simple, yet so powerful. An original use of white space to create the cross. I also love the green which is fresh and young.

4. MarsHill Church

Mars Hill Church Logo


If you ever wanted a church logo for blokes the Mars Hill logo is it. Love how they express it. I hasn’t really changed that much over the years.

5. Christchurch Church


This logo has a simplicity and childlikeness to it without feeling like a children’s focused ministry.

6. Jubilee Church



I’m a bit biased here as I’m originally from Derby and recently visited this church. But this is a good example that not every church has to have a brandmark. Words work too.

7. The Foundry



Understated. Classic, yet modern. Brilliant use of negative space. Top marks.



This logo has been copied many times. At first I thought it was a surf brand, but the team at have captured the young essence of who they are so well. I chose to show it on black as I especially like it reversed out.

9. The Church Of England

The Church of England Logo


The Church of England is actually a denomination, but I do like the sense of history and timelessness of the logo, which a hint of celtic influence.

10. Lake Hills Church

The sense space and typographic excellence in the Lake Hills Church logo is what drew me to this logo. Simple yet the brandmark expresses the outdoor feeling in the name so well.

  1. Nice collection Steve
    I’m a fan of eaglebrook church logo in USA, I love the way they use their logo all throughout their church. I think Eaglebrook are doing some amazing online stuff!

  2. I hadn’t seen the foundry, nice clean approach.

    Here are my favorites :)

  3. Here’s the one I designed for my own small-town church:
    It conveys the church’s warm, friendly, and casual atmosphere, it’s joyful worship, and the human nature of the “abundant harvest.”

  4. Great list! We may be shopping for a new logo soon and it’s always nice to have good examples to follow.

    Could you possibly add links to the church websites? I would like to know more about #5 Christ Church, but that is a common church name and difficult to find via google.


  5. Nice logos… check out ours too…


    The Well at Hancock Church, Lexington MA. This is the evening service at Hancock Church (UCC). It doesn’t have its own site, just a page on the church’s wider site (,, but the logo isn’t there yet.

    The top link is to the graphic itself, found on our facebook page

  7. Hi Steve much appreciated your work, always instructing on branding church, wanted to share a logo made.

    • Hi Eifer, thanks so much for dropping a link to your folio sample. I’ve updated the link so people can see what they are clicking so they don’t think it’s a spam link.

      Merry Christmas!


  8. Steve, I’ve seen your likes & read your critiques about church brands & logos. Do you have a primer on how a church can locate talented person to create a simple but accurate logo that portends the character of the church it represents? Thanks.

    • There are plenty of great designers out there FranP. You can look inward in your community, or appoint a design firm. I would recommend having a clear creative brief and budget that you both agree on before you start any work.

  9. I am in the process of creating a logo for my evangelism ministry. I am still getting the 501c3 status up and going, and am building the website. Anyway I can send my logo to you to get your thoughts?
