To be hope and light for the most vulnerable in Leicester and beyond by showing that we care. As we pursue God’s heart, we hope to see individuals transformed through our food bank, where poverty is rare and rejected.
At Chroma Church we want to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We hope to identify need and to provide people in crisis with the appropriate care; practically, emotionally, and spiritually. To restore value, hope, and empower people to be lifted out of poverty.
All people are welcome, invited, valuable and will be clothed with dignity.
We believe the best is yet to come for every person. No circumstances are hopeless and they have hope for a future.
We understand that restoration and wholeness require attention to all needs – financial, practical, emotional, and spiritual.
We attempt to draw out gold that will equip people to thrive. We envisage that a flourishing life is one where you are not living dependent on others. We hope by this to change the trajectory of lives caught in a cycle of poverty.
keys to mission
Chroma Compassion hopes to be there for people when they need it most. We centre around these keys to encourage a flourishing life:
Provision: We provide immediate financial, emotional, or practical support as we hope to identify the need at the time of crisis i.e. food, emotional support or financial counselling.
Acts of kindness: We believe simple acts of kindness ignite hope and restore worth and value to people. For example, offering haircuts during food bank.
Empowerment: We encourage people to empower themselves to break the cause of their poverty i.e. teaching people how to budget and manage finances well.
Work: We help to encourage people on a journey towards finding work that is fulfilling. We know that work is important for a flourishing life as it provides financially, builds confidence, gives purpose, improves mental health and prevents isolation.
