Song Book

Description

Put worship into the hands of your church members.

Allow church groups to create and share worship song books on any device (tablets, mobile phones..) and keep the worship up to date as new songs get used in church life.

It also helps follow the legal requirement of showing the copyright information and church CCLI License along with the song words.

Note: Under the CCLI license in the UK the law stands that only paper copies or emails for the use of church members is allowed. To close this gap, until the law changes, you can request from the CCLI administration the use of a private website for the use of electronic devices with a private members only website.
Therefore, the site should made private and for members only unless the songs are all in the public domain (e.g. our example Christmas Carol songbook )

‘song book’ uses the excellent post-2-post plugin by scribu, to create the association between songs and books..
