The Color Rule You Must Know When Designing a Church Website

Colors create mood. Popular theory is they can even make you hungry. (Red and yellow, we’re talking about you.)

You probably know that great church website designs aren’t all red and yellow, though, so how do you design a church website with colors that serve up an appetizing look? One that doesn’t drive visitors to the back button?

Here’s the key, from the free guide 5 Essential Rules for Church Website Design.


Choose contrasting colors

Contrasting colors are critical for readability.

There are plenty of resources online to help you choose contrasting colors, but ideally, your church website builder has premade color templates you can choose from. 

And as with fonts, you should be consistent—each page shouldn’t have a different color scheme. Does your church already have one or two brand colors in the logo? Pick colors that are consistent with it or complement it.
