Esbats - We hold esbats centered around the moon in various phases to honor the Goddess and to work magick. These gatherings are also a time of fellowship and social bonding. Esbats are typically held at the church's rustic site on Hollis road in Ellenboro.


Business Meetings - Business meetings give members a chance to be part of the church's decision making process. Typical agenda items include scheduling and budgeting for rituals and other special events. We sometimes hold our business meetings online, using Zoom.


Highway Cleanup - Our church participates in the NC "Adopt A Highway" program. We are responsible for a 2 mile section of street extending from highway 74, just in front of the Walmart turn-in, down Dekalb St to just in front of the hospital.


Wicca Wednesday - The church holds a monthly Wiccan discussion group on the first Wednesday of each month. We meet at Got Books in Shelby, NC. The meetings start at 6:00pm and are open to the public. Each month we feature a different Wiccan topic of interest. Non-Wiccans are welcome to attend and contribute to discussions, of course. These meetings are not intended as a forum for debating the merits of Wicca itself, however, and disruptive individuals will be asked to leave.


Wicca Wednesday Online- An online version of the church's Wicca Wednesday discussion meet up. Meetings are held over the Zoom platform.


Men's Campout - Camping and fellowship in a fraternal environment. We'll be enjoying some traditional campsite activities, and perhaps a few non-traditional ones as well. Come bond with your brothers.


Women's Retreat - Fellowship in a sorietal environment. Our church's take on the classic "Hen Party.". Let your hair down and get in some quality bonding time.


Lughnasadh - Lughnasadh is the celebration of the first harvest. It is named for the Celtic God, Lugh. We celebrate the grain harvest by sharing a loaf of bread baked into an anthropomorhic representation of the grain crop.


Mabon - Mabon, also called Harvest Home, is the Neopagan festival of the Autumn Equinox. Like the Sprng Equinox, it's a time of balance between dark and light, when there are equal hours of day and night. It is also the second of the year's three harvest festivals. We will celebrate Mabon as a multi-course dinner.


Book Club - The church holds a Wiccan book club which meets at Books-a- Million in Gastonia, NC the second Thursday of each month. The meetings start at 7:00pm and are open to the public. Each month we feature a book of interest to Wiccans. Non-Wiccans are welcome to attend and contribute to discussions, of course. These meetings are not intended as a forum for debating the merits of Wicca itself, however, and disruptive individuals will be asked to leave.

Hollis Road Site - The church holds most of our rituals at a rustic wooded site on Hollis Road, between Ellenboro and Polkville. The site has limited parking and very primitive amenities. Our rituals are held out of doors and there is currenlty no permanent structure on the property. Please dress in weather-appropriate clothing, including sensible footwear. If possible, please also bring your own folding camp chair. In warm weather, you may also wish to bring something to wear into the creek. Directions to the site are available through Google Maps.
