Advice on live streaming

From Jan Payne, Hon Bishop’s Adviser for Music

First, my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time when church, as we each know it, has been put on hold. Although we are no longer able to gather together to worship, I am aware quite a few churches are looking to live stream their services and some to include live music which may, or may not require a license.

CCLI now provides a supplemental licence (for a fee) to allow you to live stream music as part of worship.

The RSCM has produced a very concise statement about licenses for live-streaming if you plan to do so – follow the link below. Please make sure whoever in your church is looking after any online worship is aware about music.

Thank you and best wishes to you all.
