Althing 2021

Depiction of a community gathered for a local Thing or Moot in antiquity.


It is with great pride I get to announce this third Althing since my election as Freyr. We will be holding the British Columbia Heathen Freehold’s Althing virtually this year, on our Discord Server. The date will be the 2nd of August 2021, with the meeting beginning at 2:00 pm.

We will begin with a faining to the gods to thank them for their blessings, and ask that they continue to grant our community success and prosperity. Following the faining we will attend to the business meeting portion of the Althing. After the business meeting we will have a virtual symbel, including the swearing of any oaths that need to be sworn by new officers or members. That will conclude the planned activities of the Althing.

The business meeting will handle setting the budget and operating plan for the coming year, electing the Ombudsman and considering candidates for thanes, as well as handling any business that members wish to bring before the Althing. As this is the third Althing since my election, we will also have the Witangemot elect the Freyr. I intend to run again as I wish to continue serving my community to the best of my ability. I welcome nominations of other candidates, if you know of someone you feel could perform the role better please nominate them so the Witan may choose the person best suited to the role.

Attached below you may find the agenda for this year’s Althing. Please consider it over the next two weeks, so that you may make the best possible nominations for awards and offices of the Freehold. Also please consider anything else that you may wish to bring before the Althing, it is helpful for all of us that business from the floor be thoroughly considered in advance.

In Frith and Service,
Aaron Brookes
Freyr of the BCHF
