Welcome to the Church of the Earth


The Church of the Earth maintains Gaia’s Gardens, a gathering place for followers of Earth Religions in Raleigh, NC, hosting rituals and social gatherings open to the respectful public since 1999.

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 Respect All PathsI believe every person’s religious belief is correct, for them.
I Love the EarthThe Earth is my Mother; I cherish and protect Her in all things.
I Trust the Old WaysI learn from the past and from my elders as I create my own future.
I Am AccountableI, 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.
