Over the last year a number of churches and musicians have recorded videos for use in online worship as well as for on-site services where there are no musicians available.
The musicians and churches linked on this page have currently given explicit permission for churches and individuals to use their recordings as part of an act of worship.
Ideally videos should be shared from the link provided, although you can also try to get in touch with the content creator to request a copy of the file.
Anything used needs to be reported on with the relevant CCL Number under your church's licence. If your act of worship is being live streamed in any manner then please make sure that your church has a current streaming licence and that it is displayed as part of the live stream. It is also polite to credit the musicians and singers involved.
We hope this page is useful in planning and resourcing worship. Please do feel free to get in touch with any suggestions for resources you think could be added, or if you have any questions about using these resources in an act of worship.
