The material on this page relates to the old Godsend app and the previous web version. Whilst the numbering of some of the units have changed, and some new units added, you may still find some of the materials below helpful.

God for All Cumbria developed two guides to help those who wanted to use the old godsend resource with a group of people – maybe in a locality, or around a common interest, to help explore, grow and develop new Fresh Expressions.

How to use Godsend with a group

Ask the group to access the resource and have an explore.

There are then several options for how to use these resources:

  1. Start with the OVERVIEW booklet and worksheets exploring the OVERVIEW section of the app then move onto the TOPIC booklet.
  2. Individuals work through the OVERVIEW worksheets at their own pace then meet as a group to do the TOPIC booklet.
  3. Jump straight into the TOPIC booklet by-passing the OVERVIEW

When using the guides we recommend you read through the topic in advance on the app. Every topic has an ‘Action’ section and you will need to decide which bits you want to do with your group as applicable. If it’s a big topic you may choose to split it out over a number of weeks.

If reading the guides online there is a contents page with hyperlinks so that you can jump straight to the page you want. You can also print the guides if you wish – either in colour or black and white.

On a practical note, each week you will watch videos together which you can do either individually or as a group – if doing as a group you may want to use speakers so that everyone can hear.

You don’t need any special equipment (apart from your phone/tablet and speakers if applicable) but where supplies are needed these are clearly indicated in the guides.

We hope that you find this a useful resource – if you would like any further information about Fresh Expressions in Cumbria please email
