Class of 2014/2015 is Here!!

Class of 2014/2015We, as a staff body, are thrilled to have the Class of 2014/15 with us!  Each student is unique and designed by God and we are excited to see how He will use each one to live and work together for His glory over the next 7 months.


Already a few weeks into the Bible School programme some have come to experience the Life of Christ in them for the first time.  For others, its been a time of strengthening their relationship with a Living God who desires for them to come to a clear understanding of what it means to walk with Him day by day.  And then for others, they have yet to surrender to Jesus Christ as Lord and Life. 


Long Beach VentureVentures, an invitation to explore some of the world's most beautiful land and sea scapes with brothers and sisters in Christ during one of the first few weekends, are taking place.  These weekends away from the Main Body are utilized to hear and see all that creation declares about the character of Jesus Christ.  These weekends become a starting point for many to begin making time to seek the Lord Jesus in His creation.


Please pray for the student body that:

  • Each one would come to a true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ
  • The classes being taught in the classroom; that the Word would be received and hearts & minds transformed
  • Those in financial need would steadfastly seek God's wisdom & peace
  • Health would be restored for many as we live closely together
  • Outreaches to neighbouring communities would thrive as the students embrace their involvement in individual's lives.

Welcome Joel to the Staff Team!


Joel ThudianIf you've visited Capernwray Harbour for the past two summers Joel Thudian will already be familiar to you. 


Joel hails from South India and has completed both his first year & second year programmes at Capernwray Harbour.  He faithfully watered the gardens all over the property for the past two summers and we thought he did such a wonderful job that we've asked him to stick around another year.


Welcome Joel!

Itinerant Ministries

Travelling the Globe... Preaching Christ!


Its not long now before Charlie Fordham departs for teaching ministries in South India.  Please pray for his travels: safety, health & especially that the message of the Indwelling Life of Christ would be proclaimed and that lives would be transformed!


IndiaThe people and culture of India is ingrained in Charlie's heart as he was born there and immigrated to Canada in his early twenties.  It was there that he studied his parents lives, always giving of themselves, surrendered and anointed by God that he understood what it truly meant to be Sent. Went. Put (as the Major used to say).  It is that calling on Charlie and Marlene's lives that has Sent them to Thetis Island to pioneer what is now Capernwray Harbour nearly 36 years ago.  It is also what brings Charlie back to India year after year, while he is able, to encourage and strengthen the local believers, as the Lord Jesus sees fit to use him for Indiathe church that continues to grow in India because there too, God has called individuals to be Put.


Charlie also travels across Canada and to other parts of the world at various times of the year. If you are interested in having him come, or any other one of our staff team, please contact the office.


Barry Friesen, along with a music ministry team, travels nearly every weekend to various churches locally and beyond from September through May.  He would love to add your meeting place to his itinerary: preaching and proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord and Life wherever he goes.
