The Church of Ireland will bring The Book of Common Prayer into the digital age when it launches its Daily Worship app at the General Synod in Armagh on Thursday.
Users of the Daily Worship app will have access to Bible readings, prayers, canticles and services from The Book of Common Prayer. These will be 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 in the Church, 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."
Daily Worship can be purchased for €1.09/99p on Apple and Android devices from 10th May.
