The Church of the Guanche People (in pagan religion of the Guanche people. In 2008 the Church had approximately 300 members.[1]

It was founded by a group of Canarian devotees of the goddess Chaxiraxi. The Church of the Guanche People performed baptisms and weddings according to what they know of Guanche custom. On 2002, a wedding held in accordance with purported Guanche rites took place on the island of Tenerife — a practice not observed for several centuries since the Spanish domination of the archipelago.

The Church of the Guanche People is similar to other neo-pagan movements such as Kemetism, Hellenism and Germanic Heathenism.
