Pray As You Go
This UK based outfit (produced by Jesuit Media initiatives) have been producing material long before the digital age – a daily prayer session combining music, scripture and questions for reflection, based on Ignation
This comes recommended by Tom. It’s a UK based daily devotional that helps you pray the Bible every day, writtenby leaders from the 24-7 prayer movement and produced in partnership with CWR. Inspired by Lectio Divina, a way of meditating on the Bible that’s being used by Christians for centuries
Bible in One Year
Fantastic Bible in a year, with Nicky Gumbel reflections, with audio if required.
The definitive Bible app, now with built in audio! A staple for many, including our very own rector, Si Jones
Going Deeper – Silence and Stillness
One Minute Pause
A simple way to connect with God in the middle of this busy time. This app invites you into the simple practise of releasing everything to God, restoring your union with God and inviting him to fill you.
A well-constructed app that allows you to adjust timings for silent prayer – includes prayers, scriptures and reflections.
Highly recommended by Archbishop Justin Welby – who also contributes. ‘Christian meditation made simple’ – ‘learn Christian meditation with insightful courses from experts like Danny silk (one of the senior pastors from Bethel Church). It has some really good Bible based meditations on combating anxiety/stress/anger.
