If you want to advertise an event or opportunity, but don't need to collect registrations, use an announcement.

Check out this clip from Planning Center University.

You can tell announcements apart from the other signups on the Signups page.

  1. In the Attendees column, there will be a dash ( - ), not a number

  2. In the Registration column, it will show as None.

Create an Announcement Signup

The process to create an announcement is the same as other signups. Just choose the None option to disable attendee registrations when selecting the signup type, and then click Next.


Add the Announcement Details

Add the important details for your announcement, such as description, date and time, location, and visibility, and the event will show up on your public page.

  1. Edit the Announcement name/title.

  2. Add a description. Include links and special formatting to make important information stand out.

  3. Add an image or logo. Use .jpg, .png, or .gif file formats and an aspect ratio of 16:9 for image uploads.

    If you don't have an event logo, you can use the Unsplash integration to find free photos for your event logo.

  4. Add a physical or virtual location to let people know where to go.

  5. Add a church campus if this is a campus-specific announcement.

  6. Add categories that are relevant to the announcement.

Settings Tab

  1. Add any dates and times that are important for your announcement. If this is an ongoing announcement, leave the Dates and Times blank or delete any that are existing.

  2. Choose if and when you want to publish your announcement on Church Center. Mark it as Featured to keep it at the top of your public Signups page.

  3. Add additional Managers for the announcement, if needed.

Announcements on Church Center

On your public page, the announcement will show with its description, dates (if any), and location.


Share the link to the event with your congregation!
