Sleeping Well at Night

Keith just wants to make sure everything is covered.

Thankfully, CCLI makes obtaining the proper permission simple.

It’s Keith’s job to care about the details. He is the part-time Administrator for Trinity Church, and he sleeps better at night knowing the church is prepared for any scenario.

While the leadership team read books on leadership, spiritual renewal and personal growth, Keith’s reading list covers topics like safe-guarding, church insurance policies, Charity Commission regulations and the like.

At a recent finance meeting, the subject of CCLI came up. In preparation for next year’s budget, one of the leaders questioned whether all of their CCLI licences were really necessary. Keith keeps an eye on copyright compliance and understands the moral and legal imperative for a church to do the right thing. So he was quick to assure the entire team that the annual fee for their 450-member church was a very reasonable price to pay for the legal protection provided by CCLI for the activities where the church uses copyright works to enhance the ministry and message.

Regarding their CCLI Church Video Licence, he reminded them that it’s not just the film scenes often used to illustrate sermon points, but the children’s groups showed Veggie Tales (or something similar) pretty much every week. Then there’s the various social and evangelistic events held by the church that often involve showing films. Their PRS for Music Church Licence, essential for showing films outside of services, also covers the summer lunchtime recitals that have proved so popular in the community.

To comply with copyright legislation, all these activities needed proper permission, and CCLI makes obtaining it simple.

He also reminded the team of the importance of setting a good example. The songs and films and music the church so values represent a lot of hard work from artists and individuals who often rely on royalty payments to supplement their income. These works are someone else’s intellectual property. “We can’t use something that belongs to someone else without their permission,” said Keith. “We need to do what’s right.”

“We can’t use something that belongs to someone else without their permission,” said Keith. “We need to do what’s right.”

Of course the entire leadership team agreed. And Keith will sleep well tonight.

 

Ensure your church is properly covered.
