Igreja Evangélica Betânia

Social Work

Even though we have not yet reached all targets that are part of our Project of Faith, we have been developing a small social work since 2008.

At the present time, we already have differentiated facilities: one for church activities and another for social work.

The kitchen is installed on Rua de Damão, 297 and the worship place, on Rua de Damão, 289 in São Mamede Infesta.

We are serving about a thousand meals per month (warm and cold) among the poor in our city of Porto. We distribute these meals in the evening between 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. in several locations.

We are also distributing clothes and personal hygiene products.

Our distribution places are as follows:

  • Wednesdays: Rua de Belos Ares, Rua da Travagem (next  to the Francos Metro station) and Rua de Júlio Dinis (in Boavista)

  • On Saturdays: Rua Senhora de Fátima, Praça da República and Rua Gonçalo Cristóvão.

The charity work that we're doing has only been possible by the regular contribution of the brothers who are part of the Bethany Refuge / Bethany Evangelical Church, as well as donations from friends and sympathisers of this work and also the regular contribution of the Portuguese Food Bank against Hunger.
