About Sycamore

What is Sycamore?

Sycamore is an informal course about the Christian faith and its relevance for life today. It gives you space to meet other people, share ideas, explore your beliefs, and think about questions that really matter.

Why join a group

Here are four reasons to join a Sycamore group, together with some details about what you can expect.

Why start a group

This page explains the key elements of Sycamore and how it can help you reach out to others - with both physical and remote groups.

Sacramental preparation

Sycamore can be used as a key part of your parish catechesis and sacramental preparation, or as a supplement to the courses that you are already running. It can be run in physical or remote groups.

Remote groups

Sycamore can be used very easily with remote groups. A whole section of this website is dedicated to helping you organise and run your remote groups.

Independent groups

If you feel inspired, you can start your own Sycamore group! You don't need to do it through a church or community.

The Sycamore story

Sycamore began life at Newman House University Chaplaincy, which is the main centre for Catholic students in the Diocese of Westminster, London. Since then it has grown into a resource that has been used throughout the world.
