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 Lily Bean Coffee on Warren St 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.


Samhain Shindig - Each year, before Samhain, we like to have a little social gathering as an opportunity to have fun and fellowship with our church family. This is a BYOB costume party with appetizers and snacks.


Samhain - Samhain is the time of year when the veil between worlds is thinnest. It is a time of honoring anscestors and friends who have passed. We usually mark the occasion by enacting the descent of the Goddess.


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.

Yule Vigil - Yule, or Midwinter, is the longest night of the year, but the solstice is also the time when the sun's progress shifts from waning to waxing. We will be celebrating the rebirth of light by holding a vigil throughout the long night. We will light our fire as the sun goes down and we'll tend it until the sun returns the next morning. This act of sympathetic magick echoes the sacred rites of our anscestors. During our vigil, we will share food and cheer, as we wait for the first dawn of the waxing year.


Congregational Business Meeting - 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.


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.
