About this app

Get instant access to the Church of England's Sunday Bible readings, Collects and post Communion prayers with the official Sunday Worship app. 

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.
- Prepare booklets, pew sheets or projections for use in a local church (in line with official guidance - see for more information

Sunday Worship allows you to:

- View the next Sunday’s Bible readings, Collect and post Communion prayers in full
- Browse by date and scroll ahead to future Sundays
- Bookmark your favourite dates for easy reference
- Revisit recently viewed items

The material found in Sunday Worship is taken from the Common Worship Principle Service Lectionary and is intended for use in a church’s main Sunday service. The Principle Service Lectionary is usually used at a church community’s mid-morning service, though the minister is free to decide which service time constitutes the Principal Service of the day.

Sunday Worship is ideal for following and preparing for services. It is free to download but requires payment of a small subscription fee after a 14 day trial period.

Subscriptions are available on an annual basis in two different formats:

- A full subscription which includes all NRSV Bible Readings immediately available at all times even if when you are not connected to the Internet. (Offline access to the NRSV readings.)

- A basic subscription where the Bible readings are only available when you are connected to the Internet. (Online-only access to the NRSV readings. )

The Sunday Worship app is published by Church House Publishing, the official publisher of the Church of England. For more information visit

All Bible references (except to the Psalms) are to the New Revised Standard Version (New York, 1989). Those who wish to use other Bible translations should check the verse numbers against the NRSV.

References to the Psalms are to the Common Worship psalter, published in Common Worship: Services and Prayers for the Church of England (2000) and Common Worship: Daily Prayer (2005)

Every year I have a problem with the subscription and the app updating with the next year's readings. I need next year's readings well before Advent but the app has failed every year even though I've paid up and unistalled/re-installed, logged out/logged in again, switched my device off and on again. This app has been around long enough for these failings to have been sorted. I should have to send emails etc and wait for a reply every year.

Sorry about this Richard. We work with Church House to get the data into the app once every year and I am afraid it will not arrive until we finish processing it. The app was designed for being used by congregations rather than planning and I am afraid we prioritise the Lectionary data as that is designed as a planning tool.

This year, I have been unable to update this app. Most frustrating. I have found it useful in previous years.

Fab app. So useful. Sadly Amazon fire tablet won't recognise it so can't share phone installation with tablet for easier read. Any developmental possibilities? There are other apps Amazon fire won't install so I suspect the exclusivity is their end of the process. Thanks for making the app so easy.
