YouTube for churches

Guidance for using YouTube in your Church for Mission and Evangelism


Why use YouTube for your Church?

YouTube is a video-sharing service used by over 2 billion people worldwide each month - it is the most used social media platform in the UK and the second most popular website on the internet (second only to Google). It can be a great place to upload your church videos to use/embed elsewhere (such as your website). It's also a really popular platform for young people, however, it takes a lot of time, skill, and resources to produce regular high-quality videos for success on YouTube alone. But it can be a really useful platform for directing people to for online worship (whether pre-recorded or live streamed) as you don't need an account in order to watch videos on YouTube.
