A Change in Season!
Bible School to Conferencing
After nine months of in depth study of the Word of God, and fellowship with one another, our students celebrated the completion of their Bible School Programmes with a Commencement Ceremony on May 5. What a privilege training them to know Christ! Their Youth Retreat theme really expressed the essence of what they were learning this year, that Christ's life provides 'The Rest-I-Want'! They were coming to the recognition that truly Jesus is the only One Who can satisfy the deep needs of the soul, and they can find everything they need for Life and godliness in Him alone.
There are some spaces left for Bible School 2010/2011. Let people know to apply online or download an application. We are thankful for all the Lord has done this past year and we look forward to the Bible School year ahead as the Lord brings together a new student body.
With the close of Bible School came the beginning of our Conference season where school groups come for Outdoor Education Programmes, Church groups come for Ladies, Mens, Youth and Leadership Retreats, and artisan groups come for their own personal getaways. This season brings about 3000 guests of all ages to the property and we are delighted to be able to serve such a dynamic and diverse mix of people. Our Lord Jesus is truly at work in the hearts of many and is continually bringing people to Himself through all and in all. It is His delight to use each and every available heart for His glory and we are so very thankful to be apart of His ministry in this place. Pray for us as well as those who have volunteered with us for this season as we trust in Christ for His enabling, anointing, joy and strength.
A highlight of the Conference Season are the 2 Ladies Conference Weekends running from Friday until Sunday over the past two weekends. It is a privlege to welcome so many women from all walks of life to Capernwray Harbour expecting that the Lord Jesus will use the weekend to meet with them, reaching the deepest parts of their hearts.
Christine Wichert, one of our Resident Lecturers, taught from 1 Peter about the hope we have in Christ not only for the hope of salvation and restoration to God Himself but the hope in every day experiences that He is at work and will redeem us when He returns one day - maybe Today so be Ready!
Vicki first came to Capernwray Harbour for Bible School 2007/08 and then again for the Leadership Training Course in 2008/09. After spending one year helping her parents with the family business in Cumbria, England she has returned on full time staff as the Acting Bible School Registrar. Vicki is also one of the regular contributors to the Capernwray Community Blog. She has a strong desire to know the Lord Jesus Christ intimately and to share His Life and Love with others.
Robbie joins our staff team this summer coming to us from Liverpool, England. He attended 2 years of Bible School with us and has been a shining light in our community. Robbie has previous training in the Food Services Industry and we're looking forward to the charisma and new perspective that he brings to our team.
