'Encountering God in every day Life: a Guided Meditation' on Zoom with Jenny Walley
We are so looking forward to gathering together on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 October for Canopy Online 2022.
Martin Hodson, BUS General Director, and Lisa Holmes, Deeper Church Lead, are here with a video invitation for you and your churches!
Canopy Online – 28 & 29 October 2022
We are really excited about Canopy Online 2002, which runs on Friday 28th, and Saturday 29th October this year.
Accessible from every nook and cranny of Scotland, you can engage with a programme full of great stories from across our network, worship, prayer, Bible teaching and seminars, and all from the comfort of your sofa!
All main sessions will be accessible via our Youtube channel and our interactive seminar stream will be available through the Zoom platform.
Canopy kicks off with a national prayer gathering on the Friday evening where we will be praying for our network of churches, hearing more about our Increase vision and how our churches can be part of this exciting initiative.
This will be an inspirational gathering. A time to be encouraged by hearing what God is doing through our churches; to explore what he is saying to us in Scripture as a network of churches, and a space to encounter him by His spirit as we explore what Increase could look like for the future of Scotland. It is an opportunity to be challenged in our personal journey of faith, and to be inspired and equipped as we engage throughout.
On Saturday morning we are delighted to announce that this year our main speaker is Pastor and author Francis Chan, and we can’t wait to hear what word God has for our churches through him. You can find out more about Francis and his ministries here.
Francis Chan has been a pastor for over thirty years. He is a New York Times–bestselling author of several books, including Crazy Love, Letters to the Church, and Until Unity. He and his wife, Lisa, have been married nearly thirty years and coauthored You and Me Forever. Currently, Francis is in Northern California teaching and discipling the next generation of pastors and leaders.
The second part of the Saturday morning sessions will then be a seminar stream with four options to choose from:
- The Gospel in an Unpredictable World- Dee Jess
- Our Identity in Christ- Pam Fulton
- What Does the Bible say about Increase?- Tim Proudlove
- Encountering God in Everyday Life- a guided meditation- Jenny Walley
A variety of Canopy Online pre-record videos will also be made available for churches to use during their Sunday services, including the Francis Chan message.

Tim is pastor of Kirkwall Baptist Church up in Orkney. He’s been there for 7 years, and works
alongside his wife Claudia and other team members. Alongside pastoring, he’s working on doctoral
studies in philosophy/theology, and is particularly interested in how God brings about
transformation and increase on a heart-level.
He loves thinking and speaking and baptising and
eating ice-cream. He hates seafood, cars being parked across two spaces, and cling film. He is
looking forward to the seminar.
Jenny loves to create space for people to encounter God in their daily experience of life.
For eighteen years she has had the privilege of offering guided retreats, discernment processes, one-to-one and group spiritual direction in order to help people notice and respond to the movement of God in and around them.
Jenny received her masters degree in spiritual formation and soul care from Talbot School of Theology in Southern California, and now resides in the beautiful west of Scotland with her husband and three children.
She believes that if we can bring our questions to God and each other with openness and curiosity, we will find that he has much more to say to us than we might have originally imagined.
