Church of Ireland launches Daily Worship app at General Synod

The Church of Ireland has brought content from The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) into the smartphone era by launching its Daily Worship app at the General Synod in Armagh. The app is an initiative from the Church’s Central Communications Board in close co–operation with the Church’s Liturgical Advisory Committee. Daily Worship presents Bible readings, prayers, canticles and Services from the BCP in one place and in a simplified format. These are available for each day of the year, covering five Services: Morning and Evening Daily Prayer, A Late Evening Office, Compline, and Holy Communion.

The Most Revd Pat Storey, Chair of the Central Communications Board, said: ‘I am delighted to launch this new aid to our devotional life. 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. 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 Central Communications Board hopes that this will be a catalyst for a deeper devotional life all across our Church.’

Daily Worship can now be purchased for €1.09/99p, and downloaded from the App Store and Google Play for use on Apple iOS and Android devices.
