If Pagans are nature-worshippers, why are you creating an indoor Temple?
While we can reach our gods anywhere (both indoors and outdoors), the Temple is both a place of worship/reflection and a place of community. It is as much for our fellow followers of the gods as it is to honour our deities. We offer a space for pagans of all paths to connect to their gods in a supported way, and an opportunity to interact with their community. And we also hold a number of outdoor activities!
Are you the same as the Goddess Temples?
Not exactly. There are a number of Goddess Temples around the world now and they are sacred spaces dedicated to the divine feminine. The Goddess Temple Project is about bringing Goddess consciousness back to the world.
The Temple of All Gods is about bringing the old gods back to the world and providing a sacred space for their followers to interact with them. We honour both the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine, along with any other gender that our gods appear to us in.
What gods do you honour?
All of them! We believe that each person will form their own unique relationship with the universe and divinity, and seek to provide an encompassing space for them to do so. We provide altars centred around common deity types. For example, our Sun God altar would hold space for Ra, Apollo, Helios, Lugh, etc.
We also invite people to bring their own deity representations to the altar for their visit if they follow a divinity we don’t have already present in the space.
Does the Temple follow a particular path or tradition of Paganism?
No – we support all Pagan paths and practices. We ourselves come from an eclectic background mixing Druidry, witchcraft, folk magic and shamanism. Temple activities are aimed at being as inclusive and all-encompassing as possible, to build stronger connections across many traditions.
What is a Pop-Up Temple?
This is a temporary Temple that we set up at festivals or events, creating a sacred space for the day or weekend, etc. Afterwards, we cleanse the space and take the Temple down. This lets us carry the Temple energy to many locations, and be present in our community.
When will your permanent Temple be established?
The birthing process is always longer than we expect! Our focus for now is on building strong connections to our community and providing Temple space on a temporary basis. Our goal is to have a permanent location which would serve as both a Temple and a community centre, providing a safe and supported space for workshops, rituals, and community events.
How can I support the Temple?
We will be establishing a method for accepting donations from the community in the future. For now, please support us by coming along to Temple events or workshops! Don’t forget to subscribe to our Crossroads newsletter to keep informed of upcoming events and Temple news.
