Licences for Churches
Keeping Churches Covered
The heightened accessibility offered by the internet, coupled with major advances in technology, means that churches now have access to a vast range of music, video and creative works for use in their services and activities. But the issues related to copyright are complicated, and legal compliance can be confusing. CCLI is here to make it simple. Our licences are tailored for the differing needs of churches and are designed to enable the fair and legal use of creative works while saving valuable administrative time, effort and expense.

CCLI serves every part of the Body of Christ. I remember when it was almost impossible to legally print out and project all the song lyrics to the songs we were singing. Obtaining permission from every publisher was a daunting task. CCLI has made it so easy to comply with copyright laws by simplifying the process in so many ways. They have allowed me to focus more on the heart of ministry and less on the maze of administration. I am truly grateful for their vision and integrity.
