Free hymn music available for streamed services

The Church of England has released rights-free music for use on streamed services (in conjunction with St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Royal School of Church Music). Up to five hymns are being released each week, which are available for free from the A Church Near You Resource Hub every Thursday evening during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Resource Hub is free and part of, the Church’s local church finder, and can be accessed by more than 17,000 editors. Details can be found below as to how local churches can register and log in to the website.

Churches who wish to use this music as part of services via YouTube, Facebook, Zoom or other platforms must hold a CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International) licence (which most churches already do) and add the streaming option to it. To find out how to do this and purchase this licence, visit the CCLI website.

NB: The CCLI License is for streaming purposes, not for recorded video.
