For reproducing words, churches with a CCL or OneLicense licence will be covered in the usual way, and should report use of songs in their license returns (e.g. if a song is reprinted in a service sheet made available on a church website). For churches without a licence WGRG usually request a donation, but they are waiving this for the current crisis.
