Pub Moot is a long standing tradition in many modern Pagan communities. This is a regular, repeating event.
The Pub Moot is a place to come out and socialize with spiritually and religiously like-minded folk. Meet and greet, have a pint, share a story and a laugh. The Pub Moot is the perfect place for complete newcomers to introduce themselves and meet other people.
Invite your friends and family.
from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition
n. An ancient English meeting, especially a representative meeting of the freemen of a shire.
When we meet in a public space, we are the representatives of our tradition and our values. We love Pagans and we love Pagan culture. We also want to set an example to the world that we are a civil and respectable people.
We are accepting of differences, open-minded, and non-judgemental. However, we also invite, encourage, support and foster open-ended discussion. We support free speech. Disagreements are bound to happen, but we are first children of the Lord and Lady, brothers and sisters in a common world. We strongly encourage you to be slow to take offense if someone has a different opinion than yours.
Pub Moot is the 2nd Wednesday of every month
from 8pm until we get tired and go home.
Note: In December, there is no Pub Moot. See Wiccan Circle.
At the Merchant Tap House
6A PRINCESS ST, KINGSTON ON, K7L 1A2
(Please do not contact the pub directly about this event. Our arrangement is informal.)
Wiccan Circle is an open-door repeating event at a more private location. At these events we celebrate the Eight Wiccan Sabbats: Samhain, Yule, Imbolg, Ostara, Beltaine, Litha, Lughnasadh and Mabon. On months that occur between Sabbats we do a variety of other religious and spiritual activities, and host more focused topics of discussion and learning.
Anyone is welcome to attend (19 years of age or over), even if you don't consider yourself to be Wiccan, or even Pagan. However, we, the Fellowship of the Lord and Lady, are a Wiccan group and therefore our practice, our teachings, and our traditions are oriented around Wicca. If Wicca is not your style, we will gladly help you to network with other groups that may better suit your beliefs and practices.
Wiccan Circle is the 4th Wednesday of every month
from 7:30pm until 10:30pm.
Note: In December, Wiccan Circle is 2nd Wednesday of December.
For the dates: September 27, October 25, and November 22, of 2023

It is our goal to serve the community to the best of our ability. However, there are laws which prohibit teaching alternative religious values to minors.

Environmentalist Study Group. And our stated description is:
“We are a small group who are looking for a quiet intimate environment where we can get together once a month to engage in lively discussion about the books we are reading, across a wide variety of topics from environmentalism, ecology, to natural living.”
We trust this description of our goals is suitable not only for our use of The Kingston Community House, but also for your use in protecting the privacy you deserve should you find yourself needing to explain to anyone where you go one Wednesday evening a month.
