Online Service Resources


Resources to download free-of-charge for use in online services

Putting together online church services is exhausting! From time to time it may be helpful to draw on the gifts of others to help manage the energy levels of Ministers, musicians, children's and youth workers. All the contributors of the video resources below have generously made them available for use in worship in other churches. We have a huge amount of talent amongst our SWBA family and we are extremely grateful that so many are happy to share their gifts with others - thank you! We pray that these resources will be a blessing to you and those in your church communities...

There is no charge for any of the resources below - we want you to be blessed by this! If you do wish to make a donation to support the work of the South West Baptist Association (maybe similar to a 'Preaching Fee'), you can do so by clicking here.

How to use this resource page...

The various elements that you may include in an online service are listed in categories below. Under each one is a list of available resources. Clicking on an individual resource will open a new tab in your browser and take you to a separate page where you can view that particular resource and, if you wish, download it directly to your computer. To download, click the 'Download' button below the video and follow the instructions.

NB - all resources except the worship songs are provided copyright-free. Please see the note below about the licences required to use the worship songs.

Worship Songs

NB The leaders of this sung worship have kindly given their permission for these songs to be used to enable worship in other churches. However, please note that if you intend to download any of these songs to add to a service which you are then intending to upload to the internet or livestream, you will need the correct licences. A standard Church Copyright Licence does not include a licence for copyrighted content to be used in streaming or webcasting church services. CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International) now provide a streaming licence which churches can purchase from this page - uk.ccli.com/copyright-licences/#church-licences
They say:
"The CCLI® Streaming Licence provides a solution for churches wishing to stream or webcast their services, including the live worship, via websites such as YouTube and Facebook Live that are otherwise only intended for personal use. The Streaming Licence includes the right to show lyrics as part of the stream, to enable viewers to sing along. If you are hosting the stream on your own church website you will also require a Limited Online Music Licence (LOML) directly from PRS for Music. The CCLI Streaming Licence is available to CCLI Church Copyright Licence holders."
Churches using Zoom to stream services need both the CCLI Streaming Licence and the PRS for Music LOML - prsformusic.com/licences/using-music-online/limited-online-music-licence . This is because Zoom doesn’t currently have an agreement with PRS for Music as YouTube and Facebook do.
