Mystic Grove

The Mystic Grove” is the Pagan/Heathen Group at First Unitarian Church of Orlando. We are an affinity group affiliated with First Unitarian through the Adult Religious Education Program.

In 2016-2017 we celebrate 15 years of serving the Greater Orlando pagan community while promoting Unitarian Universalism!The Mystic Grove is made up of Pagans from different paths as well as those people best defined as “free spirits.” Because of this, we have no “official path.” Ritual is led by a volunteer leader each time and they may choose to do it in the style of their path. Though we vary in our Pagan practices, we are all UU.


  • Provide a safe place for Pagans/Heathens to gather for worship and fellowship.
  • Honor and give support to those on a Pagan/Heathen spiritual path.
  • Maintain an environment where people of differing age groups and ability levels are free to participate.
  • Share the collective wisdom of the past and the present.
  • Provide Pagan/Heathen and Unitarian Universalist networking.
  • Welcome those that follow alternative spiritual and philosophical paths.
  • Provide opportunity for people to socialize, network, laugh, learn and celebrate!
