CST's Upcoming Events and Other Happenings
Church of the Spiral Tree currently has five active groves, located throughout Alabama and Georgia. For information on what each grove currently has planned and in the works, please visit their webpage (below).
NEWSLETTER DEADLINES: The deadline for all submissions for this year's CST newsletters are March 1, 2013 (Ostara); June 1, 2013 (Litha); September 1, 2013 (Mabon); December 1, 2013 (Yule) . Please send us your articles, stories, reports, artwork, upcoming events, etc. to info at spiraltree dot org.
Church of the Spiral Tree and our groves welcome church members, beginners, newcomers, solitaries, and anyone else interested in participating in open sabbat, full moon, and new moon rituals, and other get-togethers. You need no experience or knowledge to participate, but we do request you come with an open mind and heart, and show respect for your fellow participants. Email the hosting grove for directions.
Some rituals and meetings will be held outdoors; in that case, please wear something comfortable and appropriate. Plan for sitting on cold and/or wet ground. Children of all ages are welcome. Ritual robes are welcome but not necessary. Donations to the Church and/or grove are entirely optional but appreciated.
Membership in Church of the Spiral Tree or in the grove is not required to participate in any CST or grove rituals; however, if you like us enough to come to several rituals and gatherings, we encourage you to join as a PAID MEMBER of CST. Your membership fee helps pay for the ritual supplies, supplies for the gatherings, postage for mailouts, and helps support the web page. You also get that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing you're supporting a worthwhile group that you yourself like, appreciate, and patronize! Also, there is never a charge for our rituals; however, Church of the Spiral Tree welcomes and greatly appreciates tax deductible donations of $1, $5 or even $10 to help with our expenses.
