If so, you must first ensure that you have obtained permission from the copyright owner.
However, the prospect of contacting copyright owners each and every time you wish to reproduce one of their songs can be daunting. It was for this reason that CCLI introduced the Church Copyright Licence (CCL), ensuring that copyright owners are properly rewarded for the use of their work and giving churches the freedom to use songs without the inconvenience of having to contact many different copyright owners.

Over 37,000 churches and schools in Europe now hold a CCL, making it one of the most widely used worship resources of today.

If you would also like to photocopy words and/or music directly from authorised publications you probably need the additional Music Reproduction Licence (MRL). Contact a member of our Sales Team on 01323 436103 for more information.
Licence fees are based on the average aggregate attendance at your main service.
If you already hold a licence from CCLI, any additional licences you purchase will be charged a a pro-rated price in order to match the expiry date of your existing licence(s). Contact us for pro-rated price.
