About us

We are a different church from the others. We believe in the spiritual world, in the Orixas (nature Gods). Church of Candomble is the first Orixa church in the United Kingdom. We do not discriminate against race, ethnicity or sexual orientation. We offer baptism and wedding ceremonies.

We also offer spiritual development:

  • Cowrie shell readings
  • Initiations (Bori)
  • Rebirth (Feitura de Santo)
  • Spiritual cleansing (Ebo)
  • Advice on how to improve your life
  • Catechism for children

Our Priestess, Mae Eja de Oxum, has over 18 years experience and has helped people in Brazil, UK, Europe as well as some Arabic countries. Mae Eja has an extensive curriculum:

  • Member of Holistc Therapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Counselling Children and Adolescents
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Diploma
  • Psychic Counsellor
  • Parapsychology Diploma
  • Master Herbalist (Phytotherapy)

Church of Candomble was only recently named a church, although it has been open and active for 12 years in England. It was previously located in Swindon, Wiltshire as Terreiro Ile Axe Dandaluna Filha.

We now have a new office, an ample structure for a better service, located in Malmesbury Wiltshire.
