InHarmony Lent&Easter logo

Following the success of the InHarmony Christmas2020 project, where the videos were viewed nearly 8000 times, we are planning a series of music and worship videos for Lent and Easter. These will be specially created by singers and musicians across the Diocese, and will available via YouTube for churches to use in creating their own online worship.

 

The logo for this project depicts the sun rising behind the cross – a symbol of Christ’s resurrection overcoming death, and in 2021 a poignant symbol of hope for a better future.

 

PLAN AHEAD – make sure you have a licence

Churches embedding these videos in their own livestreams are responsible for ensuring that they have the appropriate licenses in place – usually onelicense.net and/or uk.ccli.com. Helpful advice on what is required can be found in this article. Copyright information will be included in the YouTube description of each video.

 

Embedding the video in your own service?

Churches needing the original video files for embedding into their own service videos should contact music.development@stedscathedral.org, stating the items required.
