Santo Daime Churches & Centers

You can find in the following pages information about Santo Daime churches and centers all around the world.

We use both the terms “churches” and “centers” here because not all Daime groups consider themselves to be churches. Mestre Irineu himself never used the world “church” to describe the works, and as such many groups that are affiliated with traditional Alto Santo line will insist that they are a “center” and not a “church”.

Additionally, some smaller groups in the line of Padrinho Sebastião do not consider themselves to be churches but rather “points” or “prayer groups” when they are starting out in the early stages with just a few members.
