Bricknell Avenue is a certified FAIRTRADE Church and encourages the use of Fairtrade products on its premises for ALL meetings and events.

Fairtrade products are available by contacting Sue Weatherall

The taking of any Photographs/Video or Audio recordings during any form of Service within the Church Building is unfortunately illegal under Church Copyright Law unless specifically licenced under our streaming Licence.

If a wedding Video or Photography is required during the ceremony then a Wedding Video Recording Licence must be obtained.[Please note Bricknell does not have any financial gain under this licence]

In certain circumstances the Licence may be waived, but written permission from either the Minister or Senior Steward MUST be obtained .

For a Wedding Ceremony ; Funeral; etc any Hymn that is printed in an order of Service of any kind - MUST have the Church's CCL licence number printed [CCL 1053608 ] and the name of the Author and copyright holder against each hymn.

Any extra music played during a Ceremony ie on CD ; Homemade CD compilation; tape,or any mechanical or digital reproduction method, details of All music [ Title, Album Title , Author, Composer, Copyright Holder ; Publication date ] must be given to the PA operator, Senior Steward or Minister,as these have to be notified under our copyright licence and Performing Rights Law.

This may seem a bit extreme but it saves either the Church or the Wedding couple being liable to a fine under the Copyright Laws which carries a maximum fine of £50,000 or 2 years in prison
