A COVID-19 Update from Church of the Earth

Dear Church of the Earth Members,

Yesterday Raleigh Parks and Recreation sent out notification that all parks are closed for gatherings until April 15th. So, of course, we are following their lead and will cancel our rituals until then.

However, the Council is discussing ways to bring content to you via the internet. We are exploring a couple of options. Stay tuned for more on that ASAP.

In addition, we are having discussions on the Facebook group. We will post a new question every couple of days (or perhaps more often?). If you have already participated, thank you! If you have not, come check it out.

Stay safe My Friends,
Dodde
Church of the Earth Council Chair

Welcome to
Church of the Earth

The Church of the Earth has been hosting rituals and social gatherings for the followers of Earth-based spiritual paths since 1999. Our rituals are always open to the respectful public.

If you are an eclectic solitary, a druid with an active grove, or just “Spiritual”, with no path other than the one you are finding as you go, the Church of the Earth may be a place where you can find friends, joining a community that agrees on these four basic tenets:

I believe every person’s religious belief is correct, for them.

The Earth is my Mother; I cherish and protect Her in all things

I learn from the past and from my elders as I create my own future.

I, and I alone, am accountable for my actions.

How do I get involved?


Gatherings


We have many gatherings every month, including morning circles, full moon rituals, Sabbats, classes, and social gatherings.  We use Meetup to maintain a calendar and allow everyone to RSVP so leaders can plan events and supplies.

Get more connected by subscribing to our mailing list.  You’ll receive Earth Tones, the Church of the Earth Newsletter, and occasional special announcements not related to specific events. (We will not share your email address.)

Sustain


Help sustain Church of the Earth with a monthly donation, used for park rentals, supplies, and to eventually buy land. We also sponsor Pagan Pride Day, WitchVox, and more.
