Rob Whittaker was born in Lancashire in the North West of England in 1946. Converted here at Capernwray Hall in his late teens, he took a degree in Physics before attending London Bible College and completing a Theology degree in 1972. Rob was, until 1997, Senior Pastor of Calvary Christian Fellowship, a church he and his wife planted in 1974 in Lostock Hall, a small mill town to the south of Preston. Beginning with 12 members and initially meeting in homes, the church family grew and met in a converted shoe factory, where in the early 1990ʼs they saw 450 people attending on a Sunday morning. In 1998 Rob joined the Capernwray Missionary Fellowship of Torchbearers and in 2001 became Principal of Capernwray Bible School. He preaches extensively throughout Europe in churches, Bible schools and conferences, and more recently his travels have taken him on numerous occasions to Australia, Canada and the U.S.A. He and his wife Barbara have two children, Zoe and Abi. Rob lists as his hobbies D.I.Y, walking in the mountains and reading detective novels. He is an ardent supporter of a little known football team based at Old Trafford! Rob’s passion is to take the life giving teaching of the Bible and mesh it with 24/7 living in a transforming friendship with Jesus.
I have been coming to Capernwray for a number of years and it is an amazing place where you can come and be fed spiritually, physically and mentally. The beautiful surroundings make it so easy to find some much needed head-space with God and allow the Holy Spirit to fill you anew. Thank you so much for spiritually feeding my son. The harvest is yet to come!
It's the only place in the world where you can both laugh and cry at the same moment in time. It's somewhere you can rest, have fun and be ACCEPTED no matter what.
Capernwray is a special place that is my spiritual home. It is a place where there is space to hear from God and have so much fun. The staff are also amazing.
We have really enjoyed our time at Capernwray, the teaching has been great, the children have enjoyed their groups and had lots of fun. Thank you for a lovely time.
