THE Church of Ireland has launched a new 'Daily Worship' smartphone app for its believers.
The app is an initiative by the Church's Central Communication Board in close co-operation with its Liturgical Advisory Committee.
It offers Bible readings, prayers, canticles and services from the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) all in one place in an accessible format.
There are BCP passages available on the app for every 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, expressed her delight at the launch of The Daily Worship App after months of planning.
"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," she said.
"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 can be bought from the App Store and Google Play for €1.09.
