Christmas Backgrounds I Can’t Believe Are Free!

I don’t know about the rest of you but this blue collar worship leader is always on the lookout for FREE resources! But I also try to maintain really high standards regarding what I’m willing to place on the screen Sunday.  I’ve noticed a great trend lately of more and more artists creating cool, high quality stuff.  And more and more of them seem willing to share their work with the rest of us for free. From time to time, I want to share some of what I find (check out my post with free cross backgrounds)…maybe it’ll save you some hours of sifting through haystacks!

Because excellence matters a lot for our presentations, I try to put everything through a really strict quality filter. Here are 8 Christmas Backgrounds that I love. 4 are motions, 4 are stills.

MOTION BACKGROUNDS (All available for free download by going to the source on Vimeo and looking for the download button below the video player):

I’m still trying to decide what fun Christmas song I’ll pair with this great background this year. Maybe something like this fun arrangement of God Rest Ye/We Three Kings (maybe just don’t tell your church the name of the band that inspired you…)!


Simple. But nice.


Can’t wait to do Go Tell It on the Mountain with this one. By the way, James Taylor’s arrangement is great inspiration.


I’m using this for a slide that’ll just say “Come Now Our King” in the Zapfino font.


STILL BACKGROUNDS (All available for free download by clicking on the image to visit CreationSwap and choose your download from the menu to the right):








If you plan to use any kind of advent reading or prayer or anything like that, this might make for a nice title graphic. Or consider it for a sermon title graphic.








Because you’re bound to sing something about a star this Christmas.









You might want to keep your text toward the right of this slide to avoid those brighter spots on the left. Check out more tips for keeping your presentation both inspiring and accessible.








Obviously, just be sure your text doesn’t overlap the top or bottom of the “burlap”–not even a little!–and you should be good to go with this one.


If you decide to use any of these, be sure and tell us how you’ll use them! We all need all the inspiration we can get.
