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.

How can we find happiness? What’s the meaning of life? Is there a God? Does prayer make a difference?

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.

Sycamore groups meet in person or online. Each session involves a short film and some time for discussion. There’s no pressure. You can be yourself without any fear of being judged.

There’s a real sense of community, a spirit of friendship, some great conversation, and often some delicious food. Everyone is welcome.

“We have been so moved to hear about the impact that Sycamore is having in Catholic parishes and schools. Communities are being brought together; lives are being changed. But this is a crucial time for us as a charity.

We need to raise £50,000 to sustain our work over the coming year. This will allow us to keep our resources completely free to use, so that everyone can access what they need. Please become part of our mission by making a donation today. With sincere thanks. Fr Stephen Wang”
