A handbook for new Christian communities
Godsend is a practical toolkit to help you form new Christian communities with people who were not previously attending church.
We have produced video content to go along with each chapter which includes animations, conversations, individual stories and an easy-to-download combined video.
What others say
I've recommended Godsend to many people and small church groups as they think about how to share their faith in Jesus with friends and neighbours who will probably never accompany them to traditional church. Godsend provides a selection of simple ideas that anyone can try - at church, or outside of church in the community. I've seen the response as faithful and unassuming people realise they really can do this, even if they are quite shy about explaining their own love for Jesus. The text is easy to follow and uses everyday language, and the real-life examples provide inspiration for many different contexts. Highly recommended.
