SHORT TERM BIBLICAL AND PRACTICAL TRAINING

We offer three main course options at Capernwray Hall. You can study on our six month Winter School programme which runs from late September to April or our eight week Spring School which starts in April and finishes in June. Alternatively you can join many of our students who combine Winter School and Spring School and spend nine months here. The beauty of the different length courses we offer is that they offer flexibility for people of all ages who may be at different stages of life. For instance some students like to devote a whole year to Capernwray as a gap year option or as an opportunity to take a long break from work/life. Others make an arrangement with their employer to have an extended holiday period and come to Spring School. Whatever your choice of course and reasons for studying we are confident that it will be one of the best decisions you will ever make and lead to a life transforming experience.

Overview

One Year School is a perfect opportunity to set aside a good chunk of time to devote yourself to developing your relationship with Jesus through studying the Bible. Overall you will be with us for nine months beginning in late September and running through to the following June. During the programme of study you will read through the entire Bible as part of your daily readings. There will also be an enormous amount of teaching which covers a number of Old and New Testament books as well as specific lectures and seminars that focus on the practical side of Christian living. As many people attest this is one of the best and life transforming experiences they have had. Why not give yourself the opportunity to share in the same testimony?

The vast majority of the course will be delivered as lectures in our conference hall. The lectures last approximately 50 minutes each and there will generally be four sessions in the morning before lunch and two sessions at night after the evening meal from Monday to Thursday. On Fridays there will be a series of seminars delivered in the morning before lunch. Below is a overview of the topics and books covered during the One Year School. Please note that these titles are used as an illustration. Due to the availability of lecturers and Bible teachers the topics and titles are subject to change.

These courses will be fully explained in the early days of Bible School and are fully explained in the Course Handbook, which you will receive upon arrival.

During Winter School you will be enrolled with NCFE on Capernwray Bible School’s Foundations in Christian Life and Service course and in Spring School on the Principles in Christian Life and Service course. The courses undertaken at Capernwray are accepted at some schools in North America and other countries around the world, and your portfolio of completed work will be a valuable asset to take on to any further studies. A transcript of studies is also issued at the completion of the course.

NCFE is one of the longest standing validating bodies in the UK. One of the key reasons for working alongside NCFE is the fact that we have been able to maintain the total course content and ethos – in no way has any part of our message been compromised. As part of the accreditation, we are now inspected on a regular basis by Schools Inspection Service, a nationally-appointed body. You can read there latest inspection report of Capernwray Hall here.

As part of the course assessment process every student is required to attend all lectures as these lectures provide the input for the overall assessment of the course.

Assistance and guidance on completing the assessments are provided as part of the course schedule.

SPRING SCHOOL
14 April 2018 – 8 June 2018

Overview

Spring School is a fantastic opportunity to study at a deep level for a relatively short space of time. At just eight weeks long it is possible to fit it into a study break or sabbatical from work. It can equally work well as part of a gap year or as a short term biblical course for anyone who is interested in developing their relationship with Jesus and accessing theological training. Either way we are sure that it will be a worthwhile investment for your Christian walk and could lead to a totally new change in direction for your life.
