The Church of Ireland launched on May 10, 2018 a new app that makes prayer books accessible to more people.

The Daily Worship App contains Bible passages, prayers, canticles and services from The Book of Common Prayer. These readings will be available each day of the year to users in an easy and accessible format, reports Belfast Telegraph.

“It is a powerful thing for a community such as the Church of Ireland to be praying together, and using the same daily readings, through the vehicle of a smartphone application,” said Most Revd Pat Storey, chair of the Central Communications Board.

The new app for smartphones covers five services everyday: Morning and Evening Daily Prayer, A Late Evening Office, Compline, and Holy Communion.

Rev. Storey added that, “This app aims to help us in our personal and communal prayer lives, and to bring us closer together as a church family, and to the God whom we worship.”

The Daily Worship App is an initiative of the church’s Central Communications Board, with the cooperation of its Liturgical Advisory Committee. For those interested, the app can be bought from the App Store and Google Play for $0.99.
