What is Sychar about?
Sychar welcomes all who thirst for inner growth and spiritual nourishment; who seek to discover their authentic self and awaken to the Mystery of God in whom they live and move and have their being. They will be encouraged to journey to the heart, to experience more deeply the indwelling presence of Christ and their oneness with all creation. Accessing the unfailing wellsprings of God’s creative Spirit will enable those who thirst to be transformed by the fire of God’s love and inspired to embrace God’s mission with passion and creativity.

Where does the name come from?
“So he came to a town in Samaria called SYCHAR… Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well.” (John 4:5-6)

One important dimension of Sychar is its library of quality spirituality books and media spirituality resources. These have been generously donated by religious communities, the Catholic Resource Centre (CSO) and a number of individuals who recognise the value of good reading in developing a life of faith.
