CoG is a consensus-based group of Wiccan and Witchcraft covens, groves, groups, and solitaries mostly based in the United States. It was formed on October 31, 1975 to foster and practice the spiritual teachings of its member groups, to facilitate communication between its member groups, to issue clergy credentials and to educate the public about Wicca and Witchcraft. Since its formation, it has also taken an active and prominent role in interfaith work. For more about CoG, see the main CoG website at www.cog.org.
