What we're about

"They that ever desired me shall ever attain me."

Book of Shadows (1949)

The Colchester Wicca Meetup Group is a common first port of call for those in the Essex who are interested in Wicca. It is run by the Order of the Horse and Moon whose primary coven is the Coven of the Horse and the Moon.

It has the following objectives

1) To allow Wiccans to meet like minded individuals who are interested in the subject.

2) To allow those interested in Wicca to learn more about its practice.

3) To facilitate the practice of Wiccan rites

4) To provide a way for individuals to join a Wiccan coven

The group provides a straightforward access point to the Wiccan tradition and we are dedicated to facilitating access to coven Wicca for all seekers.

Our Order and coven websites are below



We plan run a full set of eight Sabbats. Four will be public rites and four are social meetups in pub with training for new members. These can be attended by any member or friend.

We also plan to run some Esbats. They are held on the full moon, and are normally held in private houses. The Order of the Horse and Moon and its associated covens also hold a number of events not on Meetup which are for the members associated with the covens. Although the covens are spiritual groups they are also groups of friends and hold their own gatherings.

We try to avoid bringing members to events in private houses who are unknown to our network unless they are with a friend we know. Additionally we are a group for Wiccans. Our focus is on those seeking to join the Wiccan path. The simply curious are welcome to attend our public events. If you are committed to another spiritual path we will not seek to convert you and there would not be much benefit to you coming to our group.

The group is also limited to the over 21s. We have special arrangements for those who are 20.

Seven Moons Wicca Course
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Due to the difficulties in arranging meetings in Colchester the Wiccan Federation which runs this Meetup group have created the Seven Moons Wicca course. This is a training course in Wicca which is run digitally and trains beginners to the level where they can cast their own circles. This course is free and is available from http://sevenmoons.weebly.com Although this course is online it is connected to a network of covens active in the South East of England. Those who wish to register the course should let us know that they are from Colchester. We will then offer a connection to those who are on the course through the discussion section on this site. We will plan to send a Wiccan initiate to Colchester once the course is firmly established in Essex to provide a limited amount of face to face training Details of the course are available in the video below https://youtu.be/v-45FZqCG7I
