BACKGROUND INFORMATION: What is Sycamore?
Sycamore is an informal course about the Christian faith and its relevance for life today. It gives people space to meet others, share ideas, and explore their beliefs. The films explore the richness of the Christian tradition from a Catholic perspective, connecting the core Christian message with the sacramental and moral life.
Sycamore has been created for parishes, schools, university chaplaincies, prisons and beyond. It is a practical resource for evangelisation and catechesis. It builds community, develops leaders, and helps the wider Christian community to become more open and welcoming. The resources are available online through an annual subscription.
Sycamore is a UK Charity (Sycamore Roman Catholic Charity, CIO 1182843). It is funded by grants, donations and subscriptions. Our funds are used to develop resources and training for evangelisation and catechesis in accordance with our charitable goal which is to advance the Christian faith as taught by the Roman Catholic Church.
