Christian Copyright Licencing International (CCLI) was established to provide churches, organisations and individuals with simple, affordable solutions to complex copyright issues.

Licences include Church Copyright, Music Reproduction and Church Video. CCLI also have a great service called SongSelect, where practically any song can be viewed, downloaded and transposed into any key!

Another helpful service is lists of the most popular songs being reported by churches. Below is the TOP 10 songs currently being reported in Australia:

1. 10,000 Reasons – Redman, Myrin

2. This I Believe (The Creed) – Fielding, Crocker

3. In Christ Alone – Getty, Townend

4. How Great is Our God – Tomlin, Reeves, Cash

5. Good Good Father – Brown, Barrett

6. This is Amazing Grace – Riddle, Farro, Wickham

7. Amazing Grace (My Chains) – Tomlin, Giglio, Newton

8. O Praise the Name (Anastasis) – Hastings, Ussher, Sampson

9. Cornerstone – Mote, Liljero, Myrin, Morgan

10. How Deep the Father’s Love – Townend

These songs will be familiar to most churches and it will be interesting to see which ones stand the test of time. As a Worship Pastor, I love to see churches writing their own songs and being inspired by the great composing skills of people such as Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Ben Fielding, Stuart Townend and co.

In terms of local music, I have been involved with CityAlight for a number of year’s now and God seems to be using these talented young songwriters to bless the church. If you’re looking for new songs that are biblically rich and musically uplifting, be sure to check them out.

Their latest album was released at the end of 2016 and the title track, Only a Holy God has been very well received.

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

Colossians 3:16-17
