Many modern churches use a video projector to present songs, videos, pictures, powerpoints etc. For this you need some software and thankfully there are now many good and free song presentation programs available.
I am making my electronic songbooks available for you to freely download them and use them in your song presentation program. Each song has a file with arabic script and a file with romanized script, as most Kurdish groups in Europe have people from different regions and not all can read the Kurdish-Arabic script. If needed you can present the songs or Bible verses bilingual with VideoPsalm.
Unfortunately, there is a small problem with all programs that they do not fully support right to left writting. The Kurdish Arabic script shows ok except the punctuation marks at the end of a line will jump to the right.
OpenSong is a free, open-source software application created to manage lyrics, chords, lead sheets, overheads, computer projection, and more.
It is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
I've worked with it for many years and I prefer it for its simplicity.
Check out its features from their website and give it a try:
The Opensong XML song files can be imported by almost every other program if you already use or prefer a different program.
Here are the Opensong song folders for download. They are usually copied into (C:\Users\MYNAME\Documents\OpenSong\Songs).
These are the most actual song files I have, but there are still not all songs from "Goraniye Rohiekan" prepared. Also some have an optional Bible verse some not.
The best free worship presentation software for Windows that I've found.
Some extra features that makes it distinct from other programs:

Unfortunately, other programs fail to import this files and it does not run on Mac OS X.
