Family Weeks


Come and relax together with other families, other children, other teens and other parents. There are friends to meet and there is fun to share. Our age appropriate Bible teaching will introduce the children to Jesus, let the teenagers discuss Christian issues and give adults time to soak up and reflect on Scripture. Full board is a great help on a family holiday as you can now all relax, turn up for meals and all enjoy the great facilities we have to offer in your spare time. We also provide evening “Baby Listening” for children under 7 years old during the evening meeting. Either staff will monitor corridors or we will give you a baby monitor depending on the location of your bedroom.

What our guests are saying about Family Weeks:

This was a fantastic family holiday with great food, great teaching and lovely, friendly staff. It had well organised events and activities set in a beautiful location.

Capernwray is a very friendly, homely, safe environment and great for the kids. The teaching was fantastic from a world-class teacher and communicator

This is a great family holiday at fantastic value. It is set in such lovely surroundings and provides much spiritual encouragement.

It is always so much more than a holiday for all the family. A place where we have the opportunity to hear God’s voice.
