One of the best things about Canopy is the opportunity to learn, worship and pray together, to welcome God’s presence and listen for all He has in store for us. Our focus this year is on
Everyday Discipleship, inspired by Romans 12: 1-2
“Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering” (The Message)
1 June 2024, Larbert High School

Hannah and her husband Tom co-lead Lighthouse Church in East Lothian. Passionate about growing disciples who make a tangible difference in the local community, Hannah loves equipping and encouraging people.
‘We believe that we best learn to follow Jesus together, in relationship with other people. Our vision is for multiple communities of disciples across East Lothian. In communities we eat together, pray together, read the bible together, and find accountability for sharing Jesus and making a difference.
She loves her two primary-aged kids, sea swimming, cooking up a roast and sticking her nose in a good book.
We are delighted that Hannah and Thomas will be our keynote speakers at Canopy 2024! Between them they bring a deep love of Jesus and a wealth of experience, knowledge and wisdom gained through their years of involvement in church leadership and serving.
Both Thomas and Hannah have a real passion for everyday discipleship, and will be sharing from their experience of leading and serving as disciples in their local ministries.
We can’t wait to learn with them and see what God is wanting to speak to us at Canopy Summer 2024!
Thomas is married to Claudia and they have a two year old Elijah and a bump that will have hatched by Canopy ’24.
They’ve been leading Stenhouse Baptist together since 2016 and really love it.
‘At Stenhouse we believe that church is about much more than just a Sunday service.
We’re involved in the local schools and the prison amongst other things. We believe that God’s love doesn’t just belong in the church building and we’re looking to make friends with everyone & anyone in Stenhouse.’
Thomas also loves being a volunteer prison chaplain and eats most things.

Her greatest achievement (still a work in progress) is being loved by her husband and raising her three young children, who teach her more about love (and her need for Jesus) than all of her past experience combined.
