New Evangelisation Program Launched – Sycamore!
Sycamore has launched! A resource for evangelisation and as one of the benefactors for creating this gateway we at the Diocese are very excited by this and would love for you to check it out!
So 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, explore their beliefs, and think about questions that really matter. Each Sycamore session involves a short film and time for discussion. There’s no pressure and no commitment. People can be themselves 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.
The high-quality films are engaging, thought-provoking, and accessible to those with little or no religious background.They explore the richness of the Christian tradition from a Catholic perspective, connecting the core Christian message with a vision of the sacramental and moral life. They will also appeal to people from different Christian traditions and backgrounds. The films are presented by Fr Stephen Wang, a Catholic priest with much experience in teaching and media work, and they include Christian testimonies and street interviews about the challenges of believing today. Sycamore has been created for parishes, schools, university chaplaincies, prisons and beyond. It develops leaders, builds community, creates genuine friendships, and helps the wider Christian community to become more open and welcoming. Discussion questions are built into the films so that the sessions can be run very easily.
