Who We Are

The Mystic Grove is the Pagan/Heathen Group at First Unitarian Church of Orlando.

Since 2001 we have served 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 Unitarian Universalists or sympathize with UU values.

In June 2016 we became a chapter of the The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS)

  • 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 who follow alternative spiritual and philosophical paths.
  • Provide opportunity for people to socialize, network, laugh, learn, and celebrate!
