Join us in 2018 for good times full of Bible teaching, fun activities and opportunity to rest, relax and recharge.
AMAZING CHRISTIAN HOLIDAYS
At Capernwray Hall we run Family holidays, holidays for Children, Teenagers, Singles – in fact, holidays for all ages; Easter, Summer, Christmas and New Year.
For over sixty years we have been running Christian holidays from our beautiful manor house in the North West of England. Since the very beginning our mission has been to proclaim the transforming power of the Lord Jesus Christ to train people for service in the worldwide church. Whichever of our holidays you attend you are sure to find a warm welcome, inspiring Bible teaching and a packed programme of activities. Our aim is to give you a fantastic Christian holiday experience where you can encounter Jesus and be changed by him. We are confident that whatever your age or interest we have a holiday that’s right for you.
What our guests are saying about Capernwray Holidays…
A STUNNING LOCATION
Capernwray Hall is set in over 127 acres of fabulous park and woodland. Built in the mid-1800s as a private home for the Lord Lieutenant of the county of Lancaster, the Scottish border is 70 miles to the north; to the east lie the Yorkshire Dales with their beautiful waterfalls and rugged crags and to the south is the City of Lancaster. Manchester international airport is just over an hour away. Many of our guests comment on our beautiful scenery and grounds, suggesting that our peaceful environment is one that promotes, rest, contemplation and opportunities to be alone with God. Families too enjoy the knowledge that children can run free about our property, making the maximum use of grassy slopes, fields, a private lake and gardens.
FULL BOARD ACCOMMODATION
Whichever of our Holidays you choose, we’ll aim to make it as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. That’s why all our holidays offer full-board accommodation, so you never need to think about planning, preparing and making meals – or the washing up afterwards! Our fantastic Dining Room can seat 250 people in a warm and welcoming environment, with staff to serve and take care of your every need. We serve a wide variety of food and can cater for vegetarians. We will try to cater for medically essential diets whenever possible if we are given details in advance of your visit. All meals are included in your holiday, usually from the evening meal on your arrival day to breakfast on your departure day.
We plan to attend to your spiritual needs as well as your physical ones by providing inspiring worship times and encouraging Bible teaching on all of our holidays. As Bible teaching is so important to us we make sure it features in each of our holidays which means you will have at least one scheduled teaching session per day of your stay, usually as part of a worship or praise meeting. Some holidays, for example Summer Studies, will have many more teaching sessions than this, offering a more intensive, Bible school style experience. Breakfast devotions, campfire services, seminars, question and answer sessions and scheduled reflective times are just some of the ways that Bible teaching may be included in our varied and creative programme.
SPEAKERS FOR 2018
Whichever of our holidays you attend you are sure to have some thought provoking and inspiring Bible teaching. Some of our speakers have national or international teaching ministries and all have a passion for communicating the gospel and spreading the love of Jesus Christ. We aim to tailor our teaching to suit those attending, covering a variety of topics and Biblical books, and dealing with issues that are relevant to life in contemporary society. Our intention is to impart knowledge and practical skills to enable you to live as a productive and effective Christian whatever your age or circumstances. Here is a quick selection of some of our teachers for 2018. For speakers on specific holidays please go to the relevant holiday page.
