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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
