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 Rev 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 be purchased for €1.09/99p, and downloaded from the App Store and Google Play for use on Apple iOS and Android devices from May 10.
