EstabLishing County Groups
The Wiccan Federation is in the process of establishing county groups across the UK and a looking to set up groups in all areas of England. We have a great deal of experience in doing this and are looking to work with individuals who share the goal of facilitating Wiccan practice in their local area.
The Nature and Purpose of WF County Groups
The WF county groups exist in order to provide a place for individuals to access Wicca, including initiatory pathways and also to practice. Our groups are similar to traditional pagan moots, in that they meet in pubs, however there is a more practical focus. This is is to run a small number of rites in public and also facilitate coven Wicca for those who seek it.
The first stage is finding the people who will form the four the group. There are two types of people who are able to help with the establishment of groups. The first of these are core group members. A core group member is someone who is prepared to guarantee attending a meetup if the time and date are suitable and pre arranged with them. Core group members need to be either in easy e-mail or phone contact with the central organisation. If we have three core group members we will tie them up with a member of our core team and arrange events at time that all three core group members can attend. We will also arrange for someone centrally to come to give a talk. Generally we aim to support such groups for a year to help them get established. We would aim to visit four times around the cross quarters,
The second type of person is a county organiser. A county organiser is able to run their own events without direct support from others. We support county organisers from the central organisation. We will typically provide them with a Meetup group and contacts from London to help them get established.
We will not commence an active county group without either three core group members or a county organiser as we have found that one of these is essential to get a group established. Where we have the required resources we will, however establish an active group.
We will establish groups in any county where we have resources, however are actively looking to nurture groups in the following counties where we have already some presence
