No, apparently you need to go on a 'proper' raid once in a while for your combat magic to be fully effective. You'll get little warnings when you've gone too long without raiding - on the combat screen, your advisors will point out that you need to raid for your magic to be effective, and after a battle (if you're raided), you'll get someone saying something like "We drove them off, but our battle magic hardly had any effect."

Just the sacred time rituals, as far as I know.

I've always stuck to a balanced clan, but I assume you'd need to raid less often (if at all) in a peace clan...
