Wait a minute; I thought we were doing a deity worship series? Why are we going over Christianity when this is about witchcraft?
Fascinatingly, this is a branch of Christian witchcraft and different practices. Since it's a potential spiritual path for you to explore, I've done some research on how it works. Here's my findings:
Originally developed from Judaism, Christianity is a monotheistic-based religion. It centers around the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Christians believe in one God who also exists as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost in a trinity. They also have a firm belief in Jesus Christ sacrificing his life for the sins of all mankind.
As a unit, Christians adhere to the Bible's teachings and the Ten Commandments, which were written with the finger of God during Moses' Sermon on the Mount. They are:

Their primary tool of worship is the Bible, which follows the lives of many disciples of Christ, Christ himself, and other stories that intertwine with God.
A common practice is to attend a church with a congregation at least once a week, most often on Sunday, where a pastor or preacher gives a sermon from the Bible.
Some practices meet more than once a week for Bible study, missionary meetings, and the like. Some, like Jehovah's Witnesses for example, attend yearly or bi-yearly conventions for a few days. There conventions hold water baptisms, Biblical reenactments and plays, discussions, and talks or lessons from the Bible.
There are popular times of the year for celebration, such as the Memorial of Jesus' Resurrection, Easter, Ash Sunday, Good Friday, and Christmas.
Prayer is the most common ritual among Christians and is used as a daily practice. Prayer is also used when with a congregation during meetings.
Some Christians have an altar with a statue of Jesus or the Virgin Mary in their home. However, some do not worship idols and consider it a sin to do so, such as Jehovah's Witness.
Origins of Christian Wicca
Christian Wicca, or Trinitarian Wicca, is a practice that's based on American Wicca and is grouped into Paganism. It uses a Christian Pantheon, uses the Wiccan Rede, and celebrates the same sabbats and esbats as other Wiccans do.
It's strictly matriarchal-based and Goddess inclusive.
It was created in the 1990s due to some Christians wanting to practice their religion along with witchcraft. The practitioners are secretive and, for the most part, not interested in conversion.
There is controversy due to the term "Christian witch" between Christian and Wiccan groups as it's naturally contradictive.
