Book Club - The church holds a Metaphysical bookclub and discussion group which meet 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 or topic 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. click here for directions to Books-a-Million.


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. In the afternoon, we;ll hang out by the (or in!) the creek and socialize, and when it starts to get dark we'll celebrate our rites. Esbats are typically held at the church's rustic site on Hollis road in Ellenboro. Please call or email for directions


Pagans in the Park - Come join us for lunch and fellowship in the park! Bring a bag lunch or some fast food and enjoy the fresh air, sunshine, and good conversation. We will meet at the Play ground at the Shelby City Park the first Wednesday of each month. Feel free to dash over from the office or bring the kids. See you there! click here for directions.


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. The meeting is held in the small meeting room at the Shelby Memorial Library. click here for directions.


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. Please call or email for directions


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.click here for directions.


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. Join us for Yule
