Background Music For Churches

Background Music for Churches is an important part of the worship experience. It helps set the mood and tone of the service but also has practical use in that it drowns out unnecessary noise so people can hear what’s happening at the front as your setting up or packing down

Top tips for Churches

There are some great benefits to playing music in churches that no one really talks about. One of the best advantages is that background music can be a means of providing comfort for church attendees, as well as serving as a reminder for them to focus on God during their time at worship. The background music also has the ability to change the mood of people who come into your church. For example, if you want your congregation to feel more upbeat and energetic, then you should play songs with high-tempo beats!

The first step is figuring out what type of music will work best for your particular church setting. There are many different factors that go into this decision such as: do you have children in attendance? From this we can make a specialized playlist for Adults of all ages or children. Do you have guests who are elderly? Background music can help them feel more comfortable and welcome in a church setting.

Do I need a license to play music in my bar or Church?

If you play music in your shop or business premises you will be required by law to have TheMusicLicence from PPL PRS. The payments received from business owners for TheMusicLicence then get passed on to composers, lyricists, recording artists, musicians, music publishers and record companies. Example:  If you play music to customers on a shop floor (100 sqm or less), your combined yearly music licence for a retail shop could cost around £307 (excluding VAT). A 50% surcharge may be applied if music has been played before being correctly licensed.

Higher rates apply for larger premises.

Can I use web based streaming services like Spotify, iTunes Radio, Napster, etc to play music in my Church?
