Who does CCLI serve?
CCLI encourages worship within churches, organisations and schools in multiple countries around the world.
Who We Serve
CCLI facilitates the freedom to worship through real-time access to licensed Christian music and media while easing the burden of copyright administration.
Our copyright licences permit churches to legally reproduce, distribute and display songs, music, movies and media in your services and ministry, saving time and removing uncertainty.
Furthermore, our customers enjoy a range of benefits from CCLI and our partners. For your musicians and media team, SongSelect provides an extensive catalogue of lyrics and sheet music, plus enhanced options for search and discovery. Resources to assist playing, planning and presentation are all freely available and seamlessly integrate. For leaders and teachers, access to film scenes, motions, and graphics all come as a value-added addition to the appropriate licences.
For our school customers, CCLI facilitates legal access to a huge range of the songs popular in assemblies and times of collective worship.
As a part of the UK Government’s national licence provision, CCLI is helping to simplify copyright in schools and encourage greater understanding of intellectual property by pupils.
CCLI supports a diverse range of Christian organisations to use creative works in their ministry.
Since every organisation is different, we offer a range of solutions for events, travelling ministries, conference centres, chaplaincies, and businesses who need wide-ranging access to Christian media and content, delivered with copyright peace-of-mind.
There was a time when churches didn’t necessarily have the clearest picture about their rights to use Christian content and media. That is, until CCLI came along.
We’ve made licensing clear and discovery easy by developing agreements that are legally compliant and equitable for all parties.
Now, with more than 250,000 license holders worldwide, CCLI connects the Church with a vast repertoire of content, while administering the collection and accurate payment of royalties to our members.
Though CCLI is not a publisher, we are the trusted partner of publishers, labels and artists in providing a simple and efficient means of global authorization and access. As a publisher, you’re here to protect and promote the works you represent. We’re here to support you.
Your songs light up the Church in worship. Responding and reflecting the movement of God in the power of the Spirit, these songs are a gift to the Church.
However, a worker deserves his wages. And we believe songwriters deserve rightful compensation when their songs are shared beyond their local church community.
CCLI provides the connection between your songs and the church worldwide. Through that connection, churches are enabled to discover and enjoy your songs. In turn, you can be assured that your work is being accessed and reproduced legally and authentically, and that you will receive fair reward.
