Celtic Wicca (Church of Wicca)

Celtic Wicca (Church of Wicca)

The Church of Wicca was founded by Gavin and Yvonne Frost. They offer correspondence courses in their brand of Wicca, which is sometimes called Celtic Wicca. The Church of Wicca has just recently begun including a Goddess in their diety structure, and has been very patrofocal as Wiccan traditions go. The Chuch of Wicca terms itself “Baptist Wicca”

*The Frosts call their tradition of Wicca Celtic. To me it seems more of a mixture of high magic and eclectic Wicca, with a smattering of Celtic thrown in. For instance, they use three circles, one within the others, made of salt, sulphur and herbs with runes and symbols between them instead of just one circle. They also insist on a white- handled athame and will not have a black handled one, whereas all the other traditions I have heard or read about use a black handled one. It seems to me the Wicca they practice and teach should not be called Celtic at all; but since a lot of it is made up or put together by them from other traditions they should also give it a made-up name; say Frostism. If you DON’T have to pay for the course, and have some extra time, it would probably be worth reading just for comparison. [*From Circe, who took their correspondence course.]

The Frosts have always been rather more public than most traditions (advertising their course in the Enquirer and similar publications) which has earned them heavy criticism in less public Craft groups.

    1. Good Morning Da Louis,
      It is wonderful to hear from you. I do hope you are enjoying the blog. In regards to your question, first, I would check around my local area to see if there are any Churches. Depending on where you live, the Church could be secret only known to Practitioners. Also if you have done that, check out Witchvox.com. They have 100’s of thousands of Pagan groups, churches, covens, anything and everything Pagan across the country listed. They have a search engine at the top of their page, just type in what you are looking for. Also be sure to put in your locale. If there is any listed close to you, they will bring it up. But Witchvox is one of the best networking sources Pagans have on the net.

      I hope this answered your question. Good luck in finding a Church.
      Goddess Bless,
      Lady A
