London, UK - The Methodist Church has become the first major denomination in Britain to launch its own application for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The new app will allow users to view bible studies and daily prayers.
It is hoped it might appeal to both believers and those who might be more cautious about attending church.
The app may also offer an alternative for people who want a daily dose of scripture, but are not keen on carrying a bible on their daily commute.
The Methodist Church stresses that technology should complement, not replace traditional worship.
However, they believe the download will be popular and are already planning the next version.
Apps, which are pieces of computer software downloaded from the internet onto mobile phones, have become increasingly creative in recent years.
The Methodist Church is already engaged in new media with its Twitter account, various blogs and online bible studies.
