“The communications department at Church House has produced a fourth information guide in its growing series on church communications: ‘Getting to grips with copyright: A short guide for United Reformed churches’.
This short guide, written by Dr Jean Silvan Evans, clearly and simply covers the major copyright issues and queries that churches face – including a run-down on the most common licences; what to do if your church wants to show a TV broadcast or a film; and what you need to know about copying and photocopying from magazines, newspapers and books.
Gill Nichol, the URC’s Head of Communications, says: ‘Copyright is complicated – but we hope that this booklet, written simply and yet with authority, will help United Reformed churches navigate their way through the minefield of copyright law and how it affects the churches.’
NB: We are able to offer follow up training on church copyright issues via Chris Williams, Customer Relations Manager at Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) UK. If you or your synod or group of churches would like to invite Chris to attend a synod or similar meeting to speak about – or deliver a workshop on – church copyright issues please email him direct.
