Instagram is a brilliant social network for your church. Why? It’s free! And there is no throttling back on your posts, unlike Facebook does. Which means churches both big or small can leverage it to tell their story.

I did a quick scan around some churches that I know use Instagram well to give you some ideas on what you can post for your church. Here are twelve different examples you can use:

1) Take Us Behind The Scenes


2) Show Compassion ProjectsIMG_5659

3) Share A Memorable Quote From The SermonIMG_5651

4) Quote Scripture

5) Show the church in actionIMG_5653

6) Celebrate National DaysIMG_5654

7) Celebrate Steps Of Faith


8) Take Us With You

9) Thank Volunteers

10) Link To Guest Speakers (widen your audience)


11) Say Thank You

12. Celebrate church milestonesIMG_5660

Here are some more ideas on how you can use video on Instagram.
