Churches and Mobile Ministries
Keeping Churches Covered
The heightened accessibility offered by the internet, coupled with major advances in technology, means that churches and mobile ministries now utilise a vast range of music and creative works 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 church workers and are designed to enable the fair and legal use of creative works while saving valuable administrative time, effort and expense.
Church Copyright Licence
Protect your church. The CCLI® Church Copyright Licence™ permits churches to project or print out the words and music to the world’s great worship songs and hymns. With this licence, the church is covered for recording services on behalf of those unable to attend in person. Further, the licence permits the creation of custom musical arrangements where no published version exists. A simple alternative to seeking direct permission from each copyright owner, the Church Copyright Licence is a trusted solution and presently covers more than 250,000 churches worldwide.

I am honoured to endorse CCLI—an organisation that exists to see the praises of God declared throughout the earth. Praise God for people who through excellence and unity are committed to spirit and truth worship being restored to the House of God.
Music Reproduction Licence
Covering typography. You may be unaware that permission is required to photocopy typeset sheet music even if the work you wish to reproduce is no longer in copyright. Why? Because typography retains its own copyright. To address this issue, the CCLI® Music Reproduction Licence™ was designed as an optional add-on to the Church/School Copyright Licence. This licence enables you to legally photocopy or scan typeset pages from many of the songbooks and music publications commonly used by churches. It also permits you to share sheet music digitally—such as by emailing PDFs to others or by downloading music from a file-sharing app.

CCLI serves every part of the Body of Christ. As a Worship Pastor in my local church for the past 14 years, 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. Also, as a Songwriter, 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.
