As a way of witnessing the love of Jesus within the community the Lusitanian Church has been promoting a truly ministry of service to under-privileged. At present two institutions develop the Lusitanian Church's social responsibility:
• The Torne and Prado Schools’ Association (AETP), in Vila Nova de Gaia, which provides social services for 150 children split into the Day Nursery (25 children - 2 years old), the Kindergarten (75 children - 3-5 years old) and the Spare Time after school schedule (50 children - 6-12 years old). Last year this association also started a service that has been providing them with meals, various activities and home support for 60 older people.
• Social Center of Sagrada Família, in Queluz, near Lisbon, which has a Day Center for older people who come from an area with many social problems. The former priest of the Parish of Sagrada Família promoted a building of 40 houses for people who were living in bad conditions.
