BIBLE SCHOOL

A Place for Discovery, Growth and Transformation

Each year, Capernwray Harbour Bible School welcomes about 100 students of various ages, nationalities and denominations. Together with our full-time faculty and staff, students form a community that seeks to discover the character of Jesus Christ and to experience the transforming power of His indwelling Life.

Programme Highlights

Personal discovery through discipleship

We offer a unique mix of indoor and outdoor classes, incorporating our uniquely beautiful natural surroundings into the Bible School experience. We can’t place a grade on the work that Christ is doing in a person’s heart, which is why our program focuses on personal discovery through discipleship rather than academic achievement.

 

Classroom

The Capernwray Harbour Bible School Curriculum covers roughly 75% of the books of the Bible and emphasis is placed on personal discovery through discipleship rather than on academic achievement.

Workday

Each Wednesday, students and faculty work together to care for the facilities. From feeding the farm animals to landscaping and gardening, workdays are a healthy and refreshing change of pace.

Daily duties

Each student contributes to community life by performing a daily chore like setting tables and general cleaning. It’s a great way to learn how individual actions affect the whole body in both positive and negative ways.

Sunday evenings

We begin the week together with a formal celebration of God’s goodness to us. Students dress in semi-formal attire, attend a beautiful dinner, and join together to share song, experiences and Scripture.

Intramural sports

Much of what students discover in class during bible study is put into practice outside of the classroom. Recreational sports like floor hockey, volleyball, basketball and soccer, foster community and builds relationships.

Ventures

Ventures take students out to explore some of the most breathtaking locations on Canada’s West Coast.  A great opportunity to get to know fellow students and witness Jesus Christ as He is revealed in creation!

Bible School Testimonials

That Jesus lives in me, that life doesn't start in heaven but right now when I accept Him into my heart. He is alive in me and I am to be a living sacrifice to Him in my life so He can do His will through me. 

I have learned that faith isn’t based off feelings and that my faith in Christ is a relationship rather than a religion. I can’t do anything on my own strength it is Christ who is doing the work through me if I chose to let Him in. He will provide my needs because He cares for me so I can trust that He’s got it all figured out.

I don't think that I really had my own relationship with the Lord before I came here. I was questioning if I was truly saved and what my life purpose was. The relationship with the Lord that I have gained here can not be bought with any amount of money and is worth more than anything on this earth.     

I learned so many things this year at Bible School!  One is that God is always working in my life, even when I can't see the evidence of it.  I've learned in theory to trust him with everything and I am learning what that means in practical living.  I've also learned that God's love is unconditional; even when I mess up (which happens a lot), His promises of faithfulness remain the same.      

The most significant thing I have learnt this past year is that it’s never about me, but God working in and through me. He is my strength and I cannot do anything without Him!
