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

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.

Always wanting to update

I think there is a problem with versions. I keep being asked to update without a means to update. I even deleted the app and reinstalled, but it installed 1.20 and not the latest 1.21.

Other than that, the app is useful, but until it is fixed, it doesn’t deserve more than 3 stars.

Great reference source

I find the lectionary app a really valuable tool for service planning with access to all of the lectionary texts for each day.
The cutting and pasting facility for the texts means that I can print and annotate them when preparing sermons and this is even more useful now that it can be used on the desktop.
It is a real time-saver.

Can’t update

Like other reviewers I keep on being asked to update the app but once redirected to the app store, there is no means of doing so. Until now this has been angood app, but needs to be fixed. It works perfectly on the google play store. Only Apple has the glitch.
