oceanb3Open Classes

 Please note that due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we are currently not able to  hold classes and rituals in person. We will update this page  when we are once again able to gather. In the mean time, we encourage people to seek out natural  places to practice your spiritual path (while practicing social distancing and obeying local laws). 
 We are pleased to offer online Classes on Saturday as well as a  Wednesday night get together via ZOOM conferencing app. These  classes have been going great and our Wednesday Community Get  Togethers have been fun! It is a great  opportunity for the various  Temples to get to know members in other Temples.
 If you wish to participate, please send an email to  LPH.WCC@gmail.com with your email address or drop them a  message through our Facebook page. Notices are sent out the day of the event.

Classes are scheduled from Sabbat to Sabbat. Generally, we begin the class cycle anew after each Samhain, choosing this time to concentrate on the basics of Wiccan worship, theology, and practice. For a general idea of the classes that will be presented between Samhain and Yule, please refer to The Basics in the List of Public Classes offered.

Please note that from time to time classes that are not on this list may be offered. These non-standard classes may be announced on the Hamilton Pagans message board, but there may not always be advance notice.

If you’re thinking of coming to one of our classes, you may wish to bring writing materials. Power outlets are available for those bringing laptops. Classes are normally held Saturdays  from 4:30 pm until 6:30 pm at the Sky Dragon Centre at 27 King William Street, Hamilton. Classes are held on the lower level at the Sky Dragon. The stairs to the lower level are to the left at the front as soon as you enter the Relay Coffee Roasters and the classroom is the first room to the left at the bottom.  Please check our website posts or class schedules each week in the event of we are at alternate locations or cancellations. If you are on Facebook, updated information will be available on our Facebook page:  Wiccan Church of Canada (WCC) Hamilton Temple.  Rituals will take place at 8:00 PM on the second floor. Gather time is 7:30. Weekly class topics can be found on the Schedules page. Please hover over the links in the calendar with your mouse or click on them for further information regarding a specific class. Any special announcements regarding class or ritual will also appear on the Schedules page.

Remember, classes are free of charge, but we survive on donations which pay for the use of the space, materials used in ritual, and our community outreach. Donations may be given to the Handmaiden or Treasurer. We also collect non-perishable food for Hamilton Foodshare and any donations towards this are welcome. If you have questions about the classes, please send e-mail to priesthood@hamiltonwcc.ca or lph.wcc@gmail.com
