We at Hillsong Church are passionate about serving the global church community during this
time and support The Church in transitioning from physical meetings to online church.
During this time Hillsong is ensuring that our music content can be facilitated by your church
in your online stream as smoothly as possible.
There are two ways Hillsong music can be used in a stream of a church service (both live and
pre-recorded). With original sound recordings, including multi-tracks and backing tracks, or
without, i.e. with your own musicians.
CCLI have a Streaming Licence that covers not only your favourite Hillsong songs, but over
500,000 songs. This licence is extremely affordable and accessible for all churches and
covers you for when you stream your own versions of the songs. See http://ccli.com/
streaming for further information.
YouTube & Facebook
While we recognise there are many streaming options for churches today, we highly
recommend YouTube & Facebook when it comes to streaming services online as the best
option when using any Hillsong sound recordings. (If you use YouTube & Facebook during
this COVID-19 pandemic time, we will treat our sound recording in your stream as non
commercial and therefore “User Generated Content” which means an automatic license within
YouTube & Facebook will apply).
Your channel will receive an automated third-party claim, this will not affect your
channel, or block content and should display accordingly on your video. To ensure there are no
automated blocks, we recommend YouTube.
We have partnered during this period with multitracks.com to have our Multitrack stems
licensed for free for church streaming. https://www.multitracks.com/artists/Hillsong/ (to be
used in conjunction with a CCLI streaming license).
If you require a different type of master use (such as on a platform that is not YouTube or
Facebook), please email email@example.com. We can review and will endeavour to
respond within 24-48 hours.
If you have any questions or there are any issues with your channel when using Hillsong
songs please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Continuing to rely on Him in this time of uncertainty, thankful for the unwavering hope we
have in Jesus and who He is.
