Our Mission

Mission Statement & Statement of Faith

Through Biblical teaching, exemplary living and practical training, we proclaim Jesus Christ, Who by His indwelling Life equips people to serve Him in His Church worldwide; thus being a Living witness to His Resurrection Life in a lost and perishing world.

Our History

A History of Transformation

Our stunning location has an intriguing history. First settled in 1886 by Henry Severn, the property later became a well-known location for community events in the grand Preedy Hall, built by Mr. and Mrs. Burchell. The present Main Hall was constructed in 1926 after a fire destroyed the original structure. In 1979, God led Charlie and Marlene Fordham to found Capernwray Harbour Bible Centre with nothing but $100 in their pockets.
