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 (or in Ingles cafe on Hwy 74 if the weather is harsh) 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.


Litha - Litha, also called Midsummer, is the Wiccan festival of the Summer Solstice. It's the time of transition from the waxing year to the waning year. We mark this turning point witht he symbolic battle of the Oak King and the Holly King.

Afterwards we will be participating in the Great American Campout

Great American Campout - Pack up your sleeping bags and tents and come on out, we have plenty of room for creekside camping at our church's rustic wooded site near Ellenboro.

Men's & Women's Retreats - Camping and fellowship in a fraternal (or sorietal) environment. We'll be enjoyign some traditional campsite activities, and perhaps a few non-traditional ones as well. Let your hair down and get in some quality bonding time. click here for directions.
