For 10½ years, from 1999 to 2009, Dave and Mandy pioneered and ran a free church called ‘Church on the Hill’ in south Birmingham.
The Jeremiah Tree fund really grew out of the gifting activities of that church, which although in a deprived area of Birmingham, managed to collect handsomely for needy people and projects near and far:
For example, money sent abroad by Church on the Hill totalled £23,493, mainly to Romania, The Philippines and Pakistan.
After visiting the Philippines early in 2016 and seeing at first hand the need for financial aid, Dave and Mandy established a dedicated fund (‘The Jeremiah Tree’) and during 2016, £5,600 was collected and sent in direct support of the project to help the Aetas people in the Philppines.
Now in Autumn 2017, Dave and Mandy have been called to minister in a beautiful but remote part of Scotland. They plan to set up a streaming broadcast service over the internet for the highlands community called ‘The Day of God’s Favour’.
