If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

You, as the User, will make every effort to register the download and subsequent use of the material with CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International) if the work is used in the context of an church activity and that church has a CCLI licence.  

If your church does not have a CCLI license, we encourage you to obtain a license and thereby support the songwriters and their work (refer Section 3, Material Licensing, in the Contributor’s Agreement which states that “by uploading material to ShareSong.org, you are making your material available for non-commercial use by both CCLI Licence Holders and people who do not hold a CCLI Licence.“).
