Reflections on the Psalms app

Out now on iOS and Android.

Embark on a rewarding spiritual journey through the rich and inspiring landscape of the Psalms.

Reflections on the Psalms provides insightful commentary on each of the Bible's 150 Psalms, from the same experienced team of writers and scholars behind the bestselling Reflections for Daily Prayer app.

The app allows you to follow a simple pattern of Psalms over the course of a month - following the 1662 Book of Common Prayer - or in any order you choose.

Whether you practice Daily Prayer every day, want to explore the Psalms on Sundays, or are looking for something new, Reflections on the Psalms will enhance your spiritual journey.
The app provides you with:

- Original reflections on every psalm from leading writers, including the Archbishop of York John Sentamu, John Pritchard, Paula Gooder and many more.

- The text of the Psalms in full , as found in the widely-used Common Worship: Daily Prayer, including suggested refrains and the popular psalm prayers.

- Specially written introductions by renowned writers Paula Gooder and Steven Croft exploring the Psalms and the Bible and the Psalms in the life of the Church.

Reflections on the Psalms is priced at £8.99. Book and ebook versions are also available from Church House Publishing priced £14.99.

Daily Prayer app

Out now on iOS and Android, the first official app for Daily Prayer, designed to make it even easier to follow Morning, Evening and Night Prayer in both Contemporary and Traditional forms.

The basic version - with simple, instant access to all the services available on the Church of England website - is completely free. An optional premium subscription to give you offline access (without the need for Wi-Fi or mobile signal) to twelve months of material is available within the app for £1.49.

The Official Common Worship Lectionary app - now also for Android

Integrate the Church of England's pattern of daily Bible readings seamlessly into your life with the official Common Worship Lectionary app for iPad/iPhone/iTouch and now for Android (4.0+).

For each day of the church year, it presents the Common Worship lectionary readings in full, complete with dynamic links to the Bible passages themselves (NRSV translation). All approved variations are clearly presented, including the Additional Weekday Lectionary.

The app also allows you to:
- Access the Collect and Post-Communions for the day at the touch of a button.
- Mark and annotate records - ideal for service planning
- View the week's lectionary in a single page

The app is free to download and includes a free 14 day subscription with offline Bible readings. Before or after your trial subscription has finished you can sign up to pay for either a full subscription for 3 months which includes all NRSV Bible Readings immediately available at all times, or a basic subscription for 3 months where the readings are only available when you are connected to the Internet.

The Sunday Worship app

A quick and simple way for everyone to access to the Church of England's Sunday Bible readings, Collects and post Communion prayers with the official Sunday Worship app for iOS and Android (4.0+).

For every Sunday of the year, plus Principal Feasts and Holy Days, Sunday Worship gives you the key texts in full for that day's main service, taken from the Church of England's Common Worship Lectionary. It will help you:
- Prepare practically for taking part in a Church of England Sunday service, whether you are leading worship, offering intercessions, giving the Bible reading, or running a children's church.
- Reflect further on the Sunday service's Bible readings and prayers throughout the week.
