App Description

Integrate the Church of England's pattern of daily Bible readings seamlessly into your life with the official Common Worship Lectionary app for iPad.

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.
- Start your annual lectionary whenever you like: no need to wait for the new church year.
- Read biographies from 'Saints on Earth' of individuals commemorated in the Common Worship calendar on that day.

The app is free to download and includes a free 14 day subscription. After this period, an in-app subscription must be purchased to receive further content.

There are two types of subscription available:

- Basic subscription: Lectionary references, Collects and Post Communions are always available, but NRSV Bible readings are only available when you are connected to the Internet (£4.99 for 12 months).

- Full subscription: includes all NRSV Bible Readings immediately available at all times, even when you are not connected to the Internet (£8.99 for 12 months).

3 month subscriptions are also available.


The Common Worship Lectionary app includes the official Calendar, Bible Readings (NRSV) and Collects from the Church of England.
